### 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).

### How to calculate the y intercept?

From the equation

For any function (not necessarily affine/linear), calculate the value for $x = 0$. The value obtained is the y-intercept.

Example: A curve of equation $3x ^ 2 + 1$, with $x = 0$ is $3 \times 0^2 + 1 = 1$, so 1 is the y-intercept

For an equation of a line of the plane, the equation has the form $a x + b$ with $b$ the y-intercept.

Example: A line of equation 3x+4 has 4 as y-intercept

From 2 points (line only)

With 2 points, can be calculated the equation of the line (see the linear equation calculator) and thus to deduce the y-intercept (see above)

From the slope coefficient and 1 point (line only)

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).
