Answer:

See explanation.

Explanation:

To find #X# intercept, substitute #0# for #y# in the function formula and calculate #x#:

#3*x+4*0=2#

#3x=2#

#x=2/3#

The #X# intercept is #(2/3;0)#

To find #Y# intercept, substitute #0# for #x# in the function formula and calculate #y#:

#3*0+4*y=2#

#4y=2#

#y=1/2#

The #Y# intercept is #(0;1/2)#
