if you were to set say "x = 0"
what do you end up with?
i have no clue
well, lemme put it this way
if you set x = 0 in the equation, what would the equation look like?
that is, for every "x" you change it to a 0

o ok so y=c
yes, so let's take a peek at a graph|dw:1378492370123:dw|
what's the value of the "x-axis" when the graph it TOUCHING the y-axis there?
yes, so when "x = 0", whatever value "y" takes, is the point at which the graph TOUCHES the y-axis, or is when the graph INTERCEPTS the y-axis
thus that point is called the y-intercept
so setting x = 0, gave us y = c, thus "c" is the y-intercept
