### Example Question #2 : Graphing Lines

What is the y-intercept of the line ?

Explanation:

The y-intercept is the point at which the line intersects the y-axis.

It does this at .

We plug  in for  in our equation, , to give us .

Anything multiplied by  is , so .

Our coordinates for the y-intercept are .

### Example Question #1 : How To Graph A Point In Pre Algebra

Graph the point .

Explanation:

The first number in the ordered pair indicates how far left or right the point resides from the origin. The second number in the ordered pair indicates how far up or down the point resides from the origin. Numbers that are positve are located on the right side and above the origin while negative numbers are located to the left of or below the origin. This point resides to 2 units to the right and 1 unit above the origin.

### Example Question #2 : How To Graph A Point In Pre Algebra

Graph the point .

Explanation:

The first number in the ordered pair indicates how far left or right the point resides from the origin. The second number in the ordered pair indicates how far up or down the point resides from the origin. Numbers that are positve are located on the right side and above the origin while negative numbers are located to the left of or below the origin. This point is located 3 units to the left and 7 units above the origin.
