# How do you find the y intercept given y=-1/6x+6?

Aug 2, 2018

The $y$-intercept is at (0, 6).

#### Explanation:

$y = - \frac{1}{6} x + 6$

To find the $y$-intercept, plug in $0$ for $x$ and solve for $y$:
$y = - \frac{1}{6} \left(0\right) + 6$

$y = 0 + 6$

$y = 6$

Therefore, the $y$-intercept is at $\left(0 , 6\right)$.

$6$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in slope-intercept form

$y - m x + b$, with slope $m$ and a $y$-intercept of $b$.

By pattern matching, we see that our $b$ term, the $y$-intercept, is $6$.
