Answer:

Assuming you have an equation in terms of variables #x# and #y#
evaluate for #y# when #x# is set to #0# to get the y-intercept and vise versa for the x-intercept

Explanation:

The y-intercepts are the points where the equation crosses the y-axis; for all point on the y-axis, #x=0#

(Similarly for the x-intercepts).
