Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Every linear equation in two dimensions (x and y) will be of the form: \[y = mx + c\] where m is equal to the slope of the line and c is equal to the yintercept. In coordinate terms, the yintercept can be written as (0, c), as the value of x along the uaxis will always be equal to zero. So, given the equation: \[y = 4x 6\] you should be able to pick out the appropriate yintercept value (c) from comparison to the generalised form above. Hope that helps! :)
