Answer:

#y(0)# and # y(x)=0#

Explanation:

#y (0) # gives you the interception with the y-axis, since #x=0#

#0 + y = -9#
#y=-9#
That gives us #(0, -9)#

#y (x) = 0# gives us the interception with the x-axis because# y=0#.

#x + 0 = -9#
#x = -9#

This gives us interception with x-axis at# (-9 , 0)#
