#### x-intercept

To find the x-intercept, plug in and solve for x

Plug in .

Multiply and 0 to get 0.

Simplify.

So the x-intercept is .

------------------------------------------

#### y-intercept

To find the y-intercept, plug in and solve for y

Plug in .

Simplify.

Divide both sides by to isolate .

Reduce.

So the y-intercept is .

Notice that if we graph the equation , we can see that the graph has the x-intercept and the y-intercept
