# Calculus

I was wondering how to find the x and the y intercepts of the following equation

y = xe^(-x^2/2)

I know for a fact that the intercept is through 0,0 but I don't know how to do this long hand.

When x is zero, y is zero, and vice versa.

Here's the question I'm having trouble with: Tell how you would identify the intercepts for the graph of the equation: 3x + 6y = 18 I'm not exactly sure how you would find the intercepts from this equation. Thanks!
