The equation for a line in standard form, or slopeintercept form, is
To convert the equation

Divide both sides of the equation by 10:
#(10y)/10=(6x)/10  9/10#
#y=(6x)/10  9/10# 
Reduce
#(6x)/(10)# to#(3x)/(5)# , and you will get the equation in standard form:#y = 3/5x  9/10# .
The slope (
Graphically, this is what the function looks like:
Usually, if the question asks where does a line intersect the yaxis or the yintercept, it is usually written in terms of a point on a graph where x = 0.
In this equation, the point is
