1.6 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.

Find the y-intercept for the straight line y = 2x+3.
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.

Directions: Solve the following problems. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
Q 1: Find the y-intercept for the straight line y = 3x + 7.

Question 2: This question is available to subscribers only!
