Answer:

The #y#-intercept is at #(0, 6)#.

Explanation:

#4x - 3y = -18#

To find the #y#-intercept, plug in #0# for #x# and solve for #y#:
#4(0) - 3y = -18#

#0 - 3y = -18#

#-3y = -18#

Divide both sides by #color(blue)(-3)#:
#(-3y)/color(blue)(-3) = (-18)/color(blue)(-3)#

#y = 6#

Therefore, the #y#-intercept is at #(0, 6)#.

Hope this helps!
