To determine

The procedure to find the x- and y-intercepts of the graph of an equation.

Solution: When the value of y is zero, we get x-intercept.

When the value of x is zero, we get y-intercept.

Explanation

x-intercept: The point (a, 0) is an x-intercept of the graph of an equation when it is a solution point of the equation. Let y be zero and solve for x to get x-intercept.

y-intercept: The point (0, b) is a y-intercept of the graph of an equation when it is a solution point of the equation. Let x be zero and solve for y to get y-intercept.
