# How to find the y-intercept given x^2+14+1?

May 15, 2015

Please check your question. y = x^2 + 14x + 1 ?

Possibility 1
$y = {x}^{2} + 14 + 1$
then
$y = {x}^{2} + 15$

The y-intercept is the value of $y$ when $x = 0$
So the y-intercept in this case would be $15$

Possibility 2 (you meant $14 x$)
$y = {x}^{2} + 14 x + 1$

Again, the y-intercept is the value of $y$ when $x = 0$
So, in this case, the y-intercept is $1$
