#### Answer:

X - intercept is

Y - intercept is

#### Explanation:

The quickest way to find the x and y intercepts for this equation is to rearrange the equation into **slope-intercept form** before substituting y as 0.

**Slope intercept form** is the equation *y-intercept*.

To rearrange this equation:

As you can see, 7 is in the place of

Next we input y as 0 because if it is an x intercept then it wont move vertically.

Therefore #-7/6 is the X intercept.
