the y intercept is where the graph intersects the y axis

so at the y-axis you know the x point is 0. so plug in 0 for x and solve for y. That will give you the y-intercept

so you should have 5(0)-8y=120
anonymous
  • anonymous
then 5 times 0 is zero so you get -8y=120.

then divide both sides by -8..and you will get your y-intercept
