#### Explanation:

#"to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses"#

#"the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0rArr0+3y=-9rArry=-3larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr-5x+0=-9rArrx=9/5larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#

graph{(y-5/3x+3)((x-0)^2+(y+3)^2-0.04)((x-9/5)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
