What are the intercepts of  -4 x + 6 y - 5 z = 60 

a.  (–15, 0, 0), (0, 10, 0), (0, 0, –12)

b.  (15, 0, 0), (0, 10, 0), (0, 0, 12)

c.  (15, 0, 0), (0, –10, 0), (0, 0, –12)

d.  (–15, 0, 0), (0, –10, 0), (0, 0, 12)

When we put zero in for x and y, we get -5z = 60; divide by -5 and you get z = -12

When we put zero in for y and z, we get -4x = 60; divide by -4 and you get x = -15

When we put zero in for x and z, we get 6y = 60; divide by 6 and you get y = 10

That means the answer is A

Hope that helps.
