the y-intercept is when x = 0. it is just that, an incercept of the y-axis. it's point is (0,b) where b is some point along the y-axis. 0 = x this means that for any given equation, the y-intercept represents a "starting spot". for instance, if you are talking about time, then the y-intercept is the value when the time = 0. or if you are talking about distance, then the y-intercept is the value when distance = 0. etc. it's the initial value to any given equation.
