I'm trying to find the x and y-intercepts but I don't know where to start

#1**0 **

The x intercept is just the point on the line at which the line intersects the x axis. In other words, the y value is equal to 0(can you see why?). When the Y value is equal to 0, that means that the line has to intersect the x axis because the x axis is at a y value of 0. Similarly for the y intercept, it's defined as the point that intersects the y axis on a given line. That means that the x value is 0, because the y axis is located at x = 0. That means we just have to look for the points that intersect the x and y axes respectively. We see that there is one point on this graph that intersects **both**, which is directly at the origin. This gives us an x intercept of 0, and a y intercept of 0, because the coordinates of the origin are (0,0)
