### How can you find the y intercept of the graph of a linear equation?

At a y-intercept, the graph touches the y-axis, meaning the
value of x is 0. So, in any linear equation, simply set x equal to
0 and solve for y. In the slope-intercept form of a linear equation
(y = mx + b), the y-intercept value is represented by the variable
b.
