Intercepts are where a curve or line cuts the x and y axes. The x axis is where y=0 and the y axis is where x=0. So to find out where the y axis intercept is we put x=0 in the function and get y=-4; and the x axis intercept is when y=0 at x=-4. Consider the axes to cut the plane into 4 sections: top right, bottom right, bottom left and top left. The line joining the intercepts forms part of the graph in the bottom left quadrant.

you need tu express the given EC. in the way  y=mx+b   y-intercept (0,b) ,  slope m

so  we got  -y=x +4 multiply by -1 de EC

                   y=-x-4            comparing the EC.       slope  m=-1    y-intercept (0,-4)         

x-intercept you put y=o and solve the ecuation for x

  0=x+4     ⇒     x=-4                                                                     x-intercept (-4,0)
