#### Answer:

x-intercept= 2

y-intercept= -4

#### Explanation:

To find intercepts, you make the other variable zero. For example, to find the x-intercept, y=0.

But with the given equation, it is not necessary to make x=0 to find the y-intercept, since it is already in slope intercept form (y=mx+b)

The *b* is always the y-intercept. The sign goes with, meaning the negative goes with the four.

If you substitute *y* as 0, you can see that *x* is then 2.

Hope this helps B)...
