Answer:

x-intercept = #-2#

y-intercept = #6#

Explanation:

For intercepts of line: x-intercept is when #y=0# and y-intercept is when #x=0#.

x-intercept

When #y=0#

#y=2x+6#

#0=2x+6#

#-2x=6#

#x=-6/3#

#x=-2# -----> This is x-intercept!

y-intercept

When #x=0#

#y=2x+6#

#y=2(0) + 6#

#y=0+6#

#y=6# ------> This is y-intercept!
