Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To find the x intercept you plug in 0 for y. This is because at the x axis y=0.

-3x+2(0)=12

-3x=12 Divide both sides by -3.

x=-4

The x intercept is in the form (x,y) a point and is (-4,0)

To find the y intercept you plug in 0 for x. This is because at the y axis x=0.

-3(0)+2y=12

2y=12 Divide both sides by 2.

y=6. The y intercept is also a point (x,y) and is thus (0,6)

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
