**MathMate**, Monday, August 29, 2011 at 6:58pmThe x-intercept is the value of x when y=0.

Thus, x-intercept is obtained by solving:

0=-2x+8, or x=4

Similarly, the y-intercept can be obtained from

y=-2(0)+8, or y=8

So the intercepts are (4,0),(0,8).

The equation can also be written in the intercept form:

x/4 + y/8 = 1
