Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh okay :) So we have the equation y = 2x + 5 To find when it will intersect the yaxis, it meant when will it cut the yaxis? Note the slopeintercept form: y = mx + b where m = slope and b = yintercept :) So what will the "b" be in your equation y = 2x + 5 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are you still confused? :) Another method to find the yintercept is that... we know the yintercept occurs when x = 0. Therefore for your equation y = 2x + 5. Plug in x = 0 (this means where you see "x" in the equation, replace it with 0) and we get: y = 2(0) + 5 y = ? ^This will be your yintercept
