#### Explanation:

#"one way is to find the intercepts, that is where the line"#

#"crosses the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0toy=0+2=2larrcolor(red)" y-intercept"#

#y=0tox+2=0tox=-2larrcolor(red)" x-intercept"#

#"plot these 2 points and draw a straight line through them"#
