Answer:

x-intercept: #4#
y-intercept: #4#

Explanation:

The x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0#
(i.e. the value of #x# where the graph crosses the X-axis, since for all points on the X-axis #y=0#)

#12-3(0)=3x rArr x=4#
(i.e. the x-intercept is #4#)

Similarly the y-intercept is the value of #y# when #x=0#

#12-3y=3(0) rArr y=4#
(i.e. the y-intercept is #4#)
