    Solve for y: \[y = 2x - 4\] So y intercept is (0, -4) This narrows it down to the last two choices. The x intercept is (2,0) because the definition of x-intercept says that y is 0.

    x intercept is when y =0 2x-0=4 x=2 so x intercept is (2,0)

    If it confuses you, I would either plot it by hand or use something like wolfram|alpha. It's easier to understand with a picture: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=2x+-+y+%3D+4
