Answer:

#"x-intercept "=1/2," y-intercept "=-2#

Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses "#
#"the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0rArr0-y=2rArry=-2larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr4x-0=2rArrx=1/2larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#
graph{(y-4x+2)((x-0)^2+(y+2)^2-0.04)((x-1/2)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
