We can start with simplifying this equation for the variable

So the x intercept is the x value when y is equal to zero (this is where the graph intercepts the x axis) and the y intercept is the y value when x is equal to zero. Thus;

when x = 0; y= -6 and when y=0; x=2

The graph of this function is depicted below by using "Desmos Graphing Calculator" so that you can get to see both the x and y intercepts of this function properly.
