Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to get it into slopeintercept form which is y=mx+b. You would: 1) Add 4x to both sides. 6y=4x+13 2) Divide each side by 6 to get the equation into slopeintercept form. y=2/3x13/6 The y intercept is the b in y=mx+b. So, your y intercept is 13/6. Wherever the y intercept is, that means that x is equal to zero. So, you ordered pair is (x,y)=(0,13/6) \[(0,\frac{ 13 }{ 6 })\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the yintercept, we have to set our x to 0 and then just solve for y... and that's already been done and it's the correct answer. Well done @marihelenh!
