Answer:

Y - intercept is #3.1#
X - intercept #6.2#

Explanation:

Given -

#2x+4y=12.4#

Y- Intercept

At #x=0#

#(0*2)+4y=12.4#
#4y=12.4#
#y=12.4/4=3.1#

Y - intercept is #3.1#

It means at #(0, 3.1)# the linear curve cuts the Y axis.

X-Intercept

At #y=0#

#2x+(0*4)=12.4#
#2x=12.4#
#x=12.4=6.2#

X - intercept #6.2#
It means at #(6.2, 0)# the linear curve cuts the X axis.
