If you have the coordinates then you got x & y intercepts, but if you are talking about a line, then to get the x-intercept set y to 0 and solve for x, and vice versa

If the gradient of the graph is given , then x and y-intercept could be found.

the formula for it is m= - y-intercept / x-intercept where m is the gradient.
