See explanation.

#### Explanation:

To find

#2*x+4*0=-8#

#2x=-8#

x-intercept =

y-intercept =

#### Explanation:

x-intercept is when

y-intercept is when

Step 1:

Lets find the x-intercept by putting

Step 2:

Lets find the y-intercept by putting

#(2 xx 0) +4y = -8

if we plot the graph, we get the same.
