x-intercept

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

Plug in .

Simplify.

Multiply.

Divide both sides by to isolate .

Reduce.

So the x-intercept is .

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

y-intercept

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

Plug in .

Multiply and 0 to get 0.

Simplify.

So the y-intercept is .

Now let's plot the points and which are the x and y intercepts respectively.

Now draw a straight line through the plotted points to graph .
