Answer:

The y intercept is #(-5)/2# and the x intercept is 5

Explanation:

For the intercepts,

For y-intercept, you replace the value of x as 0 so,

4y = 2.0 -10

4y= -10

y=#-10/4#

So, y = #-5/2#

Similarly, when y = 0

4.0 =2x -10

0= 2x -10

2x=10

So x= 5

Therefore the y intercept is #(-5)/2# and the x intercept is 5
