See the explanation

#### Explanation:

$11 x - 43 y = 9$

Divide by 9 both sides

$\implies \frac{11 x}{9} - \frac{49 y}{9} = \frac{9}{9}$

$\implies \frac{x}{\frac{9}{11}} - \frac{y}{\frac{9}{49}} = 1$

Its in the form $\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$

On equating , we get

$a = \frac{9}{11}$ which is the x-intercept

$b = \frac{9}{49}$ which is the y-intercept
