#### Explanation:

#"one way is to find the x and y intercepts, that is where"#

#"the line crosses the axes"#

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

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

#x=0toy=0+4=4larrcolor(red)" y-intercept"#

#y=0to-4x+4=0tox=1larrcolor(red)" x-intercept"#

#"plot the points "(0,4),(1,0)" and draw a straight line"#

#"through them"#
