# How do you find slope and y-intercept of y=6?

May 15, 2018

slope = $0$
y-intercept = $6$

#### Explanation:

Shown above is the graph of $y = 6$.

The line crosses the y-axis at $6$, as the line is always at that value. As it is a horizontal line, the slope is zero.

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The equation $y = 6$ means for each and every value of $x$, $y$ will be equal to $6$.

This is the definition of a horizontal line.

By definition, the slope of a horizontal line is $m = 0$

When $x = 0$ then $y = 6$

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