#### Answer

(a) x-intercept = 1 (b) y-intercept = 2

#### Work Step by Step

RECALL: (1) The x-intercept is the x-coordinate of the point where the graph crosses the x-axis. (2) The y-intercept is the y-coordinate of the point where the graph crosses the y-axis. Notice that the graph crosses the x-axis at $(1, 0)$ and the y-axis at $(0, 2)$. This means that the graph has: (a) x-intercept = 1 (b) y-intercept = 2
