#### Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses "#

#"the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0rArr-6y=18rArry=-3larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr2x=18rArrx=9larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#
