##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

Plug in

#### Explanation:

To find the x-intercept, that is, where the line touches the x-axis, the y-value is equal to

You get:

Now, you must solve for

Add

Divide both sides by

Knowing that

We use the same logic to find the y-intercept, at which we know that

You get:

Multiply:

Subtract:

Therefore, the y-intercept is

Another way to find the y-intercept is to recognize that
