The x-intercept is

The y-intercept is

This means that the line passes through the origin.

#### Explanation:

**The x-intercept is the value of #x# when #y=0#.**

Substitute

Divide both sides by

Simplify.

**x-intercept:**

**The y-intercept is the value of #y# when #x=0#.**

Substitute

Simplify.

**y-intercept: #(0,0)#**
