Hi,

Recall that the x-intercept occurs when 'y' equals zero to get:

2x - 0 = 2

2x = 2

x = 1 or (1,0)

Also, the y-intercept occurs when 'x' equals zero and therefore we get:

2(0) - y = 2

-y = 2

y = -2 or (0,-2)

I hope that helps you out! Please let me know if you have any other questions!

For x-intercept, sub y=0

2x - 0 = 2

2x = 2

x = 1

So point of x-intercept is (1,0)

For y-intercept, sub x = 0

2.0 - y = 2

-y = 2

y = -2

So point of y-intercept is (0, -2)
