For the \(x\)-intercept, set \(y=0\) and solve for \(x\).
For the \(y\)-intercept, set \(x=0\) and solve for \(y\).

hmm k then
so x intercept is when y=0
2x+4y=12
becomes
2x+0=12
2x=12 <========just divided each side by 2
x=6 is the x intercept (6,0)
y intercept is when x=0
2x+4y=12
becomes
0+4y=12 <=====just divided each side by 3
y=3
so the y intercept is at y=3
(0,3)
