#### Explanation:

A y-axis intercept occurs on the axis when the x value is equal to 0. The same with the x-axis and the y value being equal to 0

So if we let x=0, we will be able to solve for the y value at the intercept.

So the y-axis intercept occurs when x=0 and y=17/13 giving the co-ordinate.

To find the x-axis intercept we do the same thing but let y=0.

The x-axis intercept occurs when y=0 and x=-17/2 giving the co-cordinate
