1. Find the x-intercept and the y-intercept of 8x - 2y = -24.
a. x = -7, y = 2
b. x = -4, y = 14
c. x = -3, y = 12
d. x = 7, y = -2

2. Find the x- and y- intercept of the line 2x + 3y = -18.
a. x-intercept is 18, y-intercept is 18.
b. x-intercept is -6, y-intercept is 9.
c. x-intercept is 2, y-intercept is 3.
d. x-intercept is -9, y-intercept is -6.
