Answer:

0, 0

Explanation:

#x# intercepts occur on the #x# axis, where #y=0#. So to find them, you plug in #y=0# in to the equation and solve for #x#.

#0=7x#
#0=0# so the y intercept is at the origin, #(0,0)#

#y# intercepts occur when #x=0#
#:. y=7(0)#
#y=0#

#:.# the x and y intercepts of #y=7x# is #(0,0)#
