### Example Question #1471 : High School Math

What is the y-intercept of the following line:

?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The y-intercept is precisely the point in which the x-value is . Thus, we plug in to our equation and solve for .

Thus our intercept is .

### Example Question #1471 : High School Math

What is the -intercept of the equation?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the x-intercept of an equation, set the value equal to zero and solve for .

Subtract from both sides.

Divide both sides by .

Since the x-intercept is a point, we will write our answer in point notation: .

### Example Question #81 : Algebra I

Find the -intercept of .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Put the equation in slope-intercept form, y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

-5y = 3x + 10

y = (-3/5)x + 10/(-5)

Now we can easily see that is the -intercept.

### Example Question #21 : How To Find X Or Y Intercept

A straight line passes through the points and .

What is the -intercept of this line?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

First calculate the slope:

The standard equation for a line is .

In this equation, is the slope of the line, and is the -intercept. All points on the line must fit this equation. Plug in either point (1,3) or (2,2).

Plugging in (1,3) we get .

Therefore, .

Our equation for the line is now:

To find the -intercept, we plug in :

Thus, the -intercept the point (4,0).

### Example Question #91 : Coordinate Geometry

Calculate the y-intercept of the line depicted by the equation below.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the y-intercept, let equal 0.

We can then solve for the value of .

The y-intercept will be .

### Example Question #21 : How To Find X Or Y Intercept

What is the x-intercept of ?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the x-intercept, set y equal to zero and solve:

Subtract from both sides:

Divide both sides by to isolate x:

### Example Question #94 : Coordinate Geometry

What is the y-intercept of the equation?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the y-intercept, we set the value equal to zero and solve for the value.

Since the y-intercept is a point, we will need to convert our answer to point notation.
