Answer:

y-intercept #=0#
x-intercept #= 0#

Explanation:

Given #y = 4x#

The y-intercept is the value of #y# when #x=0#
#color(white)("XXXX")##y = 4(0)##color(white)("XXXX")##rarr##color(white)("XXXX")##y=0#

The x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0#
#color(white)("XXXX")##(0) = 4x##color(white)("XXXX")##rarr##color(white)("XXXX")##x=0#
