Answer:

see a step solution process below;

Explanation:

#y = - 2x + 3#

Since the origin point of intersection is always zero, hence we would use its origin point to locate their intercepts.

To find the intercept of #x#, let #y = 0#

#y = -2x + 3#, where #y = 0#

#0 = -2x + 3#

#2x = 3#

#x = 3/2 = 1.5#

Similarly, to find the intercept of #y#, let #x = 0#

#y = -2x + 3#, where #x = 0#

#y = -2(0) + 3#

#y = 0 + 3#

#y = 3#

Hence the #x and y# intercepts of the equation are #1.5 and 3# respectively..
