Y - Intercept (Problems)

To find the y-intercept for the straight line y = mx+c.
The second coordinate y that is obtained when the first coordinate x is zero is the y-intercept.
y = mx + c
Substitute x = 0
y = m(0) + c
y = c
Therefore, y-intercept is c.

Example:
Find the y-intercept for the straight line y = 2x+3.
Solution:
Given that , y = 2x + 3
Substitute x = 0, in the given equation, we get
y = 2(0) + 3
y = 3
Therefore, y-intercept for the straight line is 3.
