Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Turn the equation into the yintercept form. yintercept form y = mx +b m = slope b = yintercept \( \huge 3x + 2y + 8 = 0 \) \( \huge 3x + 8 8 = 8 \) \( \huge 3x + 2y = 8 \) \( \huge 3x  3x + 2y = 3x  8 \) \( \huge 2y = 3x 8 \) \( \huge \frac{2y}{ 2} = \frac{3x}{2} \frac{8}{ 2} \) \( \huge y = \frac{3x}{2}  4 \) Now this is in yintercept form y = mx + b. b is your y value to the yintercept form. Remember yintercept = the point (0, y) so what is the y intercept point. You can also find the yintercept by input 0 into the equation like @Vocaloid stated. suggested.
