    x-intercept: y=0 y-intercept: x=0

    in standard form just take the number by itself on the right side of the equals sign and divide it by each of the coefficients of x and y to get the x and y intercepts, respectively

    There's no need to rewrite the equation, just substitute 0 for y to find the x-intercept and 0 for x to find the y-intercept.
