#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

The axis intercepts are, as the name suggests, points on the given axis. So, the

By definition, a point lays on the

- For the
#x# intercept, we need to set#y=0# :

From here, we can easily solve for

And since we already knew that

- For the
#y# intercept, we do exactly the opposite: we know that our point will be of the form#(0,y)# , and we need to find#y# , setting#x=0# : after cancelling the#x# coefficient, the equation becomes
