Answer

$x$-intercept: $2$ $y$-intercept: $-1$

Work Step by Step

To find the $x$-intercept of an equation in standard form, we plug in $0$ for $y$, and solve for $x$. $x-2(0)=2$ We multiply: $x-0=2$ We apply the identity property of addition: $x=2$ To find the $y$-intercept of an equation in standard form, we plug in $0$ for $x$, and solve for $y$. $0-2y=2$ We apply the identity property of addition: $-2y=2$ We divide by $-2$ on both sides of the equation: $y=-1$
