#### 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+y=6rArry=6larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArrx+0=6rArrx=6larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#

graph{(y+x-6)((x-0)^2+(y-6)^2-0.04)((x-6)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

y assigning values to x ad the y

#### Explanation:

If x is zero, your y will be 6

If y is zero your x will be 6

The graph of your function (y=6-x)
