Answer:

x-intercept is 2
y-intercept is 4

Explanation:

The x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0# for the given equation.
(#y=0# along the x-axis).

The y-intercept is the value of #y# when #x=0# for the given equation.
(#x=0# along the y-axis).

This can be seen in its graph. The #x# intercept is on the #y# axis, and the #y# intercept is on the #x# axis.
