The y-intercept is at the coordinate that has a 0 for the x-coordinate. X is 0 here and y is -3. X is 0 and y is -3. This was actually one of the points, or one of the pairs that we first tried out. You can validate that 6, 0 satisfies this equation

The x-intercepts are points where the graph of a function or an equation crosses or “touches” the x x -axis of the Cartesian Plane. You may think of this as a point with y y -value of zero. To find the x x -intercepts of an equation, let y = 0 y = 0
