To determine: How to find the x - and y -intercepts of the graph of an equation.

Explanation

Explanation:

First, consider the graph of the equation.

In order to find the x -intercepts of the graph of an equation, suppose y to be 0 and then solve the equation for x. The point of the type (a,0) is x -intercept where a is any real number.

Also, to find the y -intercepts of the graph of an equation, suppose x to be 0 and then solve the equation for y. The point of the type (0,a) is y -intercept where a is any real number.
