In order to find y and x intercepts, we first need to know does they mean...
What is x intercept ?
It can be represented as point of a line intercepting x axis, if any point is to intercept x axis it's vertical position(y) has to be 0.
What is y intercept ?
if any point is to intercept y axis it's horizontal position(x) needs be 0.
We can determine x intercept by setting y = 0
and y intercept by setting x = 0.
so, for the line `4x-3y+8=0`
1) Y intercept (x = 0) is
` 4(0) -3y+8=0`
=>` -3y = -8`
=> `3y =8`
`4x-3(0) +8 =0`
`4x = -8`
so `x= -2 ,y =8/3` are the intercepts and is plotted with a dot in the graph below
