The graph of a linear function is shown on the coordinate grid.  What is the y-intercept of the graph of the linear function?

The y intercept is when x = 0. 

I can't quite see the numbers, but it looks like that at x = 0, y = -5. 

So our y intercept is -5.

I agree  with catmg...hard  to see

 

The slope of the line  =   [ 6 - -9 ]  /  [ -4, -1 ]  =  15  / - 5  =   -3

 

This means  that  when  x  changes  by - 1 , y  rises  by  3

 

So....I believe the  y intercept should be [  1  -1 , -9 + 3 ]  =  [ 0 ,  -6 ] 

 

cool cool cool

Ohhh, I should've thought about using the slope to find the intercept, would've been a lot more precise. 

 

Thanks
