Therefore, the x-intercept is at

Therefore, the y-intercept is also at

#### Explanation:

We know that the y-intercept is where

**TO FIND THE X-INTERCEPT:**

It is where y=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for y.

Dividing both sides by 2, we get:

Therefore, the x-intercept is at

**TO FIND THE Y-INTERCEPT:**

It is where x=0. Therefore, we will plug in 0 for x.

Therefore, the y-intercept is also at
