The intercepts are the points at which the function crosses the axis.

#### Explanation:

This means that, at such points, one of the coordinates of the intersection point, by definition, HAS to be zero. That is so because when a coordinate is zero, it means the point lies on the axis.

If

The intercepts are, then,
