# How do you identify the y intercept. y=1/2x?

Apr 29, 2016

${y}_{\textcolor{w h i t e}{.} \text{intercept }} = 0$

#### Explanation:

Consider standard form $\text{ } y = m x + c$

Where $c$ is the y-intercept.

In your equation $c$ still exists in that its value is 0.

So $y = m x + c \to y = \frac{1}{2} x + 0$

So the y-intercept is at $y = 0$
