# How do you find the x and y intercept of y = 3?

Apr 12, 2017

see explanation.

#### Explanation:

$y = 3 \text{ is a horizontal line parallel to the x-axis.}$ It therefore has a slope of zero and passes through all points in the plane with a y-coordinate of 3.

$\text{It does not intersect with the x-axis hence no x-intercept}$

$\text{the line crosses the y-axis at } \left(0 , 3\right)$
graph{(y-0.001x-3)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
