Answer:

#x = 7#,
#y = 7#.

Explanation:

We have to remember that equations are easier to solve if put in the form #y = mx +c#. So,
#x+y = 7#,
#y = -x + 7#.
Now we simply substitute the value of #x# for #0# to find the #y# intercept, and #y# by #0# to find the #x# intercept. So,
#y = -0 + 7#,
#y = 7#. This is the #y# intercept.
#0 = -x + 7#,
#x = 7#. This is the #x# intercept.

Hope it Helps! :D .
