X-intercept = (

#### Explanation:

The X-intercept is when Y = 0, so plug in the number 0 for Y to get

-8x - 0 = -17

Simplify to get

-8x = -17

Divide both sides by -8 and you get

x =

Then write as a coordinate, (

For the Y-intercept, X = 0, so plug in the number 0 for X to get.

-y =-17

Divide both sides by -1 to get

y = 17

Then write as a coordinate, (0, 17)
