Answer:

x-intercept : #= 3/8#

y-intercept : #= 12/17#

Explanation:

X-intercept : When you have a linear equation, the x-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the x-axis.

Y-intercept : When you have a linear equation, the y-intercept is the point where the graph of the line crosses the y-axis.

#17y = -32x + 12#

Let y = 0 or remove y term.

x-intercept : #-32x + 12 = 0# or #32x = 12# or #x = 3/8#

Let x = 0 or remove x term.

y-intercept : #17y = 12 # or #y = 12 / 17#

graph{-32x/17 + 12/17 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
