#### Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses"#

#"the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0rArry=0+2=2larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr-1/2x+2=0rArrx=4larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"# graph{-1/2x+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
