    The y intercept can be found when you set x to zero. For the R equation, setting x as 0 would give you 0. For the C equation, setting x as 0 would give you 250. This tells you how much revenue/cost you start with before you sell a single bouquet. More specifically, this means that you have made $0, and that you begin with a $250 deficit.
