how do you find the y intercept (b) in the equation y=mx=b where m is the slope

Guest Apr 27, 2017

The y intercept is the y-coordinate of the point where x = 0.


It is where the line "intercepts" the y-axis. smiley


So..to find the y-intercept, plug in 0 for x and solve for y.

y = mx + b

y = m(0) + b

y = b


b is the y-intercept in this equation
