The $x-$intercept is the point where the graph crosses the $x-$axis. From the graph, we can see that this occurs at $(10,0).$

The $x-$intercept is $x=10.$ Since the graph measures temperature in degrees Fahrenheit on the $y-$axis and time in minutes on the $x-$axis, the $x-$intercept tells us that after $10$ minutes, the temperature of the sample is $0_{∘}F.$

The $y-$intercept is the point where the graph crosses the $y-$axis. From the graph, we can see that this occurs at $(0,-40).$

The $y-$intercept is $y=-40.$ It can be interpreted as the temperature at the time when Professor Jorgensen started the experiment. The temperature was $-40_{∘}F$ at that time.
