x-axis: (2.5 , 0)

y-axis: (0 , 5)

#### Explanation:

Since this is a linear function with a form

How to solve interception with x-axis:

Here you know that y = 0, and this gives you

Divide both by two

How to solve interception with y-axis:

Here you know that x = 0, and this gives you:

Therefore, you get interception points at (2.5 , 0) and (0 , 5).
