Here, 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.

(0, 20), (5, 0) (0, 20), (5, 0) (20, 0), (0, 5) (0, 20), (0, 5) Which one of these would be right..

Well, if you understand the process then the answer will be clear. Are you understanding what I said? What is unclear?

Ok, so can you tell me what the yintercept is?

No, 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?
