Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when x = 0 the only place for the line to go is somewhere along the y axis, the intercept. and yes, when x = 0, the only option for y is to be 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, like amistre64 said, but perhaps I can frame it better, no disrespect to amistre64: yaxis      xaxis It is the point where your line(determined by your equation) INTERCEPTS the yaxis. Hence, it is called the y intercept. so, along the y axis, x is 0. so if you want to find out the yintercept of your equation, just plug x = 0 in the equation.
