Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here, it's already in slope intercept form (y = mx + b), in this case, the yintercept is "b". You can get the xintercept by setting y = 0, and solving for x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so can you tell me what the yintercept is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, that's incorrect. See here you have an equation in the form y = mx + b. Here, m and b are just numbers (constants). The important thing is that "m" is in front of the 'x' and b is by itself. In this form, the yintercept is simply, b. So what is b?
