Answer:

looking at a graph, to find the x-intercept, y=0 and to find the y-intercept, x=0. your x and y intercepts will be -8 and 52 respectively graph{6.5x - 4y = 52 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Explanation:

6.5x − 4y = 52
4y = 6.5x + 52

to find the y-intercept, x=0
4y = 6.5 (0) + 52
y = 52
the y-intercept is 52

to find the x-intercept, y=0
4(0) = 6.5x +52
6.5x = -52
x = -8
the x-intercept is -8
