# How do you find the x and y intercepts of y=-2?

Aug 21, 2017

The equation $y = - 2$ defines a horizontal line where for each and every value of $x$, $y$ is equal to $- 2$.
So, for $x = 0$, $y = - 2$ Therefore the $y$-intercept is $\left(0 , - 2\right)$
Because this is a horizontal line parallel to the $x$ access at a point of $- 2$ on the $y$-axis, there is no $x$-intercept.
