Calculation:

Consider, the equation, $y=5-\left(6\u2014x\right)$,

Put to calculate the x-intercept $y=0$.

$0=5-(6-x)$

Upon removing the bracket, multiplying by -1 yields,

$0=5-6+x$

$0=-1+x$

$x=1$

So, the x-intercept is (1,0).

To compute y-intercept, put $x=0$.

$y=5-(6-0)$

$y=5-6$

$y=-1$

So, the y -intercept is (0, -1).

Hence, the x and y -intercepts of $y=5-(6-x)$ are (1,0) and (0,-1),respectively.
