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.
