Answer:

#x=10" and "y=4#

Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses"#
#"the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0to0+5y=20rArry=4larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0to2x+0=20rArrx=10larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#
