To find the intercepts for the equation ( y = x + 2 ), you set either ( x = 0 ) to find the y-intercept or ( y = 0 ) to find the x-intercept.

For the y-intercept, substitute ( x = 0 ) into the equation:

( y = 0 + 2 = 2 )

So, the y-intercept is (0, 2).

For the x-intercept, substitute ( y = 0 ) into the equation:

( 0 = x + 2 )

Solve for ( x ):

( x = -2 )

So, the x-intercept is (-2, 0).
