y intercept at $y = 4$
x intercept at $x = 1$

#### Explanation:

This is an equation of a straight line $y = m x + c$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{Determine the x intercept}}$

The graph crosses the x axis at y=0

$\textcolor{b r o w n}{y + 4 x = 4} \textcolor{b l u e}{\to 0 + 4 x = 4}$

Thus $\textcolor{g r e e n}{{x}_{\text{intercept}} = 1}$
