Answer:

the intercept made by the straight line on x axis is 6
the intercept made by the straight line on y axis is -2

Explanation:

#x-3y=6#
Substitute x=0, to get y intercept
#0-3y=6#
#-3y=6#
#-3/3y=6/3#
#y=-2#
Substitute y=0, to get x intercept
#x-3(0)=6#
#x-0=6#
#x=6#
Hence,
the intercept made by the straight line on x axis is 6
the intercept made by the straight line on y axis is -2
