# How do you find the y intercept of (-2,3), slope =4?

Nov 7, 2016

The y intercept is at (13,0)

#### Explanation:

The equation in its general form is $y = m x + c$
Where m is the gradient of the line and c is the y intercept
So $y = 5 x + c$
The point (-2,3) is on the line. Substitute in.
$3 = - 2 \cdot 5 + c$
c=13
