# 1

Subtract from both sides.

Rearrange the terms.

Divide both sides by to isolate y.

Break up the fraction.

Reduce.

So the equation is now in slope intercept form where the slope is and the y-intercept is note: the y-intercept is the point

# 2

#### y-intercept

To find the y-intercept, plug in and solve for y

Plug in .

Multiply and 0 to get 0.

Simplify.

Divide both sides by to isolate .

So the y-intercept is .
