Answer:

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

Explanation:

#y = -1/6x + 6#

To find the #y#-intercept, plug in #0# for #x# and solve for #y#:
#y = -1/6(0) + 6#

#y = 0 + 6#

#y = 6#

Therefore, the #y#-intercept is at #(0, 6)#.

Answer:

#6#

Explanation:

This equation is in slope-intercept form

#y-mx+b#, with slope #m# and a #y#-intercept of #b#.

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