    The y intercept is when x = 0 so try plugging in 0 for x and see what you get :) y = -3*(0) = ?

    hint: y = -3x + 0 y = mx + b b = y-intercept = 0

    okay try this the orginal equation is y=mx+b and your life is easy b=0 because b doesnt exist in this problem

    b is the y intercept but in the equation there isnt a b

    an example with a b would be y=3x+2
