x-intercept: $(-4, 0)$ y-intercept: $(0, 6)$

Work Step by Step

Find the x-intercept by setting $y=0$ then solving for $x$: $2y-3x=12 \\2(0)-3x=12 \\-3x=12 \\\frac{-3x}{-3}=\frac{12}{-3} \\x=-4$ Thus, the x-intercept is $(-4, 0)$. Find the y-intercept by setting $x=0$ then solving for $y$: $2y-3x=12 \\2y-3(0)=12 \\2y=12 \\\frac{2y}{2}=\frac{12}{2} \\y=6$ Thus, the y-intercept is $(0, 6)$.
