Answer:

y-intercept #=6#
x-intercept #= 2#

Explanation:

The y-intercept is the value of #y# when #x=0#
(or, it is the value of #y# where the line crosses the Y-axis and for all points on the Y-axis, #x=0#)
#color(white)("XXX")y=-3(0)+6 =6#

Similarly, the x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0#
#color(white)("XXX")0=-3x+6#
#color(white)("XXX")rArr x=2#
