Answer:

#x=-6#
#y=4#

Explanation:

To find the x-intercept, substitute #y=0# into the equation (as the graph crosses the x-axis when y is zero).

#0=2/3x+4#
#2/3x=-4#
#x=-4/(2/3)#
#x=-4*(3/2)#
#x=-6#

Similarly, to find the y-intercept, substitute #x=0# into the equation.

#y=2/3*0+4#
#y=4#

Hope this helps :)
