Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If a = 0, then y = b for all x. So y = b for x = 1. And y = b for x = 100. And y = b for x = 0, which is the yintercept.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If y = b, then this is a horizontal line. So it will be parallel to the xasis. So if y = b, and b is not zero, there will be no xintercepts. But y = 0, then the line IS the xaxis, so the whole line intersects the xaxis.
