The $x-$intercept is the point where the graph crosses the $x-$axis. From the graph, we can see that this occurs at $(6,0).$

The $x-$intercept is $x=6.$ Since the graph measures height in feet on the $y-$axis and time in minutes on the $x-$axis, the $x-$intercept tells us that after $6$ minutes, the plane is $0ft$ away from earth, which means it has landed.

The $y-$intercept is the point where the graph crosses the $y-$axis. From the graph, we can see that this occurs at $(0,2000).$

The $y-$intercept is $y=2000.$ The $y-$intercept can be interpreted as the altitude of flight SK903 when the AFAR started recording flight data. The plane was then at the altitude $2000ft.$
