Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1xintercept is the point(s) where the graph touches the xaxis The xaxis is the line y=0, so we can plug this in and solve for x. Our points will look like this: (x, 0) (x units left/right, 0 units up/down). yintercept is the point(s) where the graph touches the yaxis. The yaxis is the line x=0, so we can plug this in and solve for y. Our points will look like this: (0, y) (0 units left/right, y units up).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, that's the point (0, 20). That would be a yintercept. And your second one is (12, 0), which is an xintercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, it appears so. :P yintercepts are where you plug x=0 in: (0, y). xintercepts are where you plug y=0 in: (x, 0). It can be confusing at times if you're not careful. :)
