Answers to Questions

What is the y-intercept? (Definition)

The y-intercept is the intersection point of the function/line with the y (ordinate) axis for the abscissa value x = 0 (origin).

Knowing the slope coefficient of a line and a point, can be deduced the equation of the line (see the linear equation calculation) and thus deduce the y-intercept (see above).
