Algebra, finding the intercept, help?

How do you find the x and y intercept of 3x+0.5y=6?

I know you set x and y to 0.. and then divide by the other variable's number.

I think?

Could somebody explain how to find the intercepts of this problem?

Thank you

    x intercept, when y is zero

    3x=6
    x=2
    y intercept,when x is zero
    .5y=6
    y=12
