#### 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 $x$.

$0 = 7 x$
$0 = 0$ so the y intercept is at the origin, $\left(0 , 0\right)$

$y$ intercepts occur when $x = 0$
$\therefore y = 7 \left(0\right)$
$y = 0$

$\therefore$ the x and y intercepts of $y = 7 x$ is $\left(0 , 0\right)$
