    The intercepts are the points where the line crosses the x-axis and the y-axis.

    You can find the x intercept by plugging in 0 for y and solving for x

    Every point on the x-axis has coordinates (x, 0). Notice the value of y is zero. Every point on the y-axis has coordinates (0, y). Notice the value of x is zero.

    To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 and solve for x. To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y.

    Copy the equation you were given. Replace x with 0. Then solve for y. Can you try that?

    Now we do the same to the y variable. We replace y with zero and solve for x.
