 Question 160115: can someone please help me with this problem: What is the y-intercept of y = 1/2x + if it passes through (-8,-4) ? Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y = 1/2x (-8,-4) -4=1/2*-8+b -4=-4+b b=-4+4 b=0 or (0,0) is the y intercept of this line. y=x/2+0 (graph 300x200 pixels, x from -10 to 5, y from -10 to 10, x/2 +0).
