# How do you graph y=7 using intercepts?

Jun 1, 2017

See below.

#### Explanation:

Compare the equation to the slope-intercept form of a line:

$y = m x + b$

where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept.

Since the equation we are given does not contain an $x$ we now that $m = 0$. We also know that the y-intercept, $b$, is equal to $8$.

If a line has a slope equal to $0$, it must be horizontal. Also, in this case, it intercepts the y-axis at $7$.
