# How to find the #y#-intercept of the line # y=x+2#?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=x+2" is in this form"#

#"with y-intercept "=2#

graph{x+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

In the slope-intercept form of:

Where: m is the slope and b is the y-intercept, thus in this case:

The slope is 1 and the y-intercept is simply 2.

2nd methode:

To find the x or y intercepts in any form of the equation of the line, simply set y or x to zero and solve for x or y respectively.

For example in this case:
