Answer:

x-intercept: #(14, 0)#
y-intercept: #(0, -14)#

Explanation:

x-intercept: #(#x-value#, 0) rarr# Where the graph intersects the x-axis

y-intercept: #(#y-value#, 0) rarr# Where the graph intersects the y-axis

Since the equation is in slope-intercept form (#y=mx+b rarr m# is the slope and #b# is the y-intercept), the y-intercept is #(0, b)#

The y-intercept is #(0, -14)#.

To find the x-intercept, plug in #0# for #y# and solve for #x#:

#0=x-14#

#x=14#

#(14, 0)#
