y intercept is value of y when x = 0

x intercept is value of x when y = 0

if y intercept is twice x intercept then its value is twice as high

Mathematically, the standard form equation is y = mx + b where m = slope and b = y intercept

for x intercept let y = 0

0 = mx + b

x = -b/m = 1/2 y intercept = 1/2 time b

m = -2

y = -2x + b is the equation
