The slope-intercept form of a line is: **y=mx+b** where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. The y-intercept is always where the line intersects the y-axis, and will always appear as (0,b) in coordinate form.

## How do you find y in slope-intercept form?

How Do You Find the X- and Y-Intercepts of a Line in Slope-Intercept Form? To find the x-intercept of a given linear equation, **plug in 0 for ‘y’** and solve for ‘x’. To find the y-intercept, plug 0 in for ‘x’ and solve for ‘y’.

## How do I solve for y-intercept?

When an equation is not in y = mx + b form, we can solve for the intercepts by **plugging in 0** as needed and solving for the remaining variable. To find y-intercept: set x = 0 and solve for y. The point will be (0, y). To find x-intercept: set y = 0 and solve for x.

## How do you find the y-intercept with two points and slope?

- Calculate the slope from 2 points. For Example, Two points are (3, 5) and (6, 11)
- Substitute the slope(m) in the slope-intercept form of the equation.
- Substitute either point into the equation. You can use either (3,5) or(6,11).
- Solve for b, which is the y-intercept of the line.
- Substitute b, into the equation.
