Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

First, solve this equation for #y#:

#(4y)/color(red)(4) = 16/color(red)(4)#

#(color(red)(cancel(color(black)(4)))y)/cancel(color(red)(4)) = 4#

#y = 4#

Because there is no #x# term we know this is a horizontal line where for every value of #x# #y# is equal to #4#.

Therefore, the y-intercept is #4# or #(0, 4)#

Also, because this is a horizontal line there is no x-intercept.
