Answer:

#x# intercept#=6#
#y# intercept=#-6#

Explanation:

We want the function to be in #y=mx+b# form, so we do this by adding #x# and #y# on both sides to get

#y=x-6#.

To find #x# intercept , we make #y=0#.

#0=x-6#

Add #6# on both sides

We get #x=6#.

To find #y# intercept , make #x=0#,

#y=0-6#

And we get #y=-6#

#x# int = #6#
#y# int = #-6#

Here is the graph, look at where the line intercepts in the #x# and #y# axis.
