Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

To find the #y#-intercept, set #x# equal to #0# and calculate #y#:

#y = -0 + 1000#

#y = 1000# or #(0, 1000)#

To find the #x#-intercept, set #y# equal to #0# and solve for #x#:

#0 = -x + 1000#

#0 + color(red)(x) = -x + color(red)(x) + 1000#

#x = 0 + 1000#

#x = 1000# or #(1000, 0)#
