8-17.

For each rule represented below, state the $x$- and $y$-intercepts, if possible.

1. The $x$-intercept is where $y = 0$.
The $y$-intercept is where $x = 0$.

1.  $x$ $y$ $−5$ $−4$ $−3$ $−2$ $−1$ $0$ $1$ $2$ $8$ $4$ $0$ $−4$ $0$ $2$ $0$ $−4$
• Look for the zeros in the table.

1.  $5x−2y=40$

The $y$-intercept is $(0, y)$ and the $x$-intercept is $(x, 0)$.
