# How to find y-intercept given y= - 6/5x + 6?

$\left(0 , 6\right)$

#### Explanation:

What is the y-intercept? It is the point the line meets on the y-axis.
So on the y-axis, the value of $x$ is 0. Put this in your line equation and you will obtain the y co-ordinate.
This gives the point on the y axis that the line "intercepts". That's why its called the y intercept. You can use that statement as an easy way to remember

So if we put $x$ = 0 in the provided equation, we find that $y$ = 6
Hence the y intercept of this line is 6.
