#### 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=0rArr0-7y=14rArry=-2larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr2x-0=14rArrx=7larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#

#"plot the points "(0,-2)" and "(7,0)#

#"draw a straight line through them for graph"#
