Yes.
It is not usually done when simplifying or reducing to lowest terms, but it can be useful to do that on occasion.  Example   The linear equation in standard form   2x + 3y = -6   Can be put into intercept form by dividing by -6   x/-3 + y/-2 = 1   The intercepts are recognized as (-3, 0) and (0, -2).
