Answer:

Therefore, the x-intercept is at #(0,0)#
Therefore, the y-intercept is also at #(0,0)#

Explanation:

We know that the y-intercept is where #x=0# and vice versa.

TO FIND THE X-INTERCEPT:
It is where y=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for y.
#0=2x#
Dividing both sides by 2, we get:
#x=0#
Therefore, the x-intercept is at #(0,0)#

TO FIND THE Y-INTERCEPT:
It is where x=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for x.
#y=2(0)#
#y=0#
Therefore, the y-intercept is also at #(0,0)#
