Y – Intercept of a Line The y – intercept of a line is the point where the line intersects or “cuts through” the y – axis.

Y – Intercept of a Line The y – intercept of a line is the point where the line intersects or “cuts through” the y – axis. Y intercepts occur where x = 0, so the coordinate point for all y intercepts is ( 0 , y )

Y – Intercept of a Line The y – intercept of a line is the point where the line intersects or “cuts through” the y – axis. Y intercepts occur where x = 0, so the coordinate point for all y intercepts is ( 0 , y ) In our diagram, you can see the line intersects the y – axis at y = 3

Y – Intercept of a Line The y – intercept of a line is the point where the line intersects or “cuts through” the y – axis. Y intercepts occur where x = 0, so the coordinate point for all y intercepts is ( 0 , y ) In our diagram, you can see the line intersects the y – axis at y = 3 Y – intercept = ( 0 , 3 )
