Answer:

The intercepts are the points where #y=0# and #x=0#

Explanation:

The y intercept is where #x=0#. In this case you have #-6y=6# and the value of #y=-1#. So, the point #(0,-1)# is on the line.

Similarly, the x intercept is where #y=0#. In this case #2x=6# and so #x=3#. Then, the point #(3,0)# is on the line. Now you have to mark the two points #(0,-1)# and #(3,0)# and graph the line through them:
