Answer:

In order to find the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph, set #y# and #x#, respectively, to #0#.

Explanation:

Let's find the x-intercept first:

#0=1/2 x-6#
#6=1/2 x#
#12=x#
X-Intercept: #(12,0)#

Next, the y-intercept:

#y=1/2 (0)-6#
#y=-6#
Y-Intercept: #(0,-6)#

Have a nice day! :)
