# What is the y-intercept of the line given by the equation y=9/2x - 4?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

Given equation:

The given equation of the line is in slope-intercept form. The general slope-intercept form would be:

Therefore, the slope of the given equation is

(0,-4)

#### Explanation:

graph{9/2x-4 [-4.98, 5.02, -4.76, 0.24]}

**Method 1**

The graph of

From the graph, it is shown that the *coordinates* of the **y-intercept** is *coordinates* of the x-intercept is

**Method 2**

From the above coordinates, you can see that at the *y-intercept*, the value of *x-intercept*, the value of

Thus, when

Be careful of leaving your answer simply as

The **correct** form of answering should be leaving it as **(0,-4)**.
