Answer:

The x-intercept is #-2#.
The y-intercept is #2#.

Explanation:

The equation #y=x+2#, which is the slope-intercept form for a linear equation #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope, and #b# is the y-intercept. Therefore the y-intercept for #y=x+2# is #2#.

The x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0#.

#0=x+2#

#-2=x#

#x=-2#
