#### Answer:

x- intercept:

y-intercept:

#### Explanation:

The x-intercept is the point at which the graph crosses the x-axis. Therefore, the y-coordinate at this point is zero. Knowing this, we can plug in

So, the x-intercept is at

Likewise, the y-intercept is the point at which the graph crosses the y-axis, and therefore the x-coordinate will be

So, the y-intercept is at
