The x-intercept is

.

The y-intercept is

#### Explanation:

Given:

This is the formula for a linear equation in standard form. This is the easiest equation for finding the intercepts. To find the x- and y-intercepts, substitute

**X-intercept:** value of

Substitute

Divide both sides by

**The x-intercept is #(4,0)#.**

**Y-intercept:** value of

Substitute

Divide both sides by

**The y-intercept is #(0,6)#.**
