# What is the y intercept for the y=2 graph?

An intercept is the point of intersection. A $y$-intercept is the point that a line (in this case, the line $y = 2$) intersects the $y$-axis.
The $y$-intercept for the $y = 2$ graph is simply the point $\left(0 , 2\right)$.
Typically, to find a $y$-intercept, we would set $x$ equal to zero and solve for $y$...But here, we don't have an $x$-term. The given line is $y = 2$ , which tells us that for any $x$, no matter how infinitely large or small, $y$ will always be 2. So, intuitively, we know that when $x$ is zero, $y$ is 2...giving us the $y$-intercept of $\left(0 , 2\right)$. Note that since this is a horizontal line, there is no $x$-intercept.
