Y Intercept

Y Intercept

Submitted by • May 6, 2013 mathsanswer.zohosites.com

Y-intercept is the point where the curve crosses or touches the y axis.The equation can touch the Y-axis more than once, some times it may not cut the y axis also, so for a given equation there can be 0 or more number of y intercepts. Y intercept is represented by (X,Y) coordinates, where X="0" always, since the point lies on Y- axis. to find Y-intercepts we plug in 0 for X in the given equation. The following diagram shows the y intercepts.
