Find the y-intercept of the line 7y-8x+12=0
2 Answers By Expert Tutors
The y-intercept is the point where x=0. So, set x=0 and find the corresponding value of y.
7y + 12 = 0
7y = -12
y = -12/7
The point (0,-12/7)

Rewrite in the form
y = mx + b
7y - 8x + 12 = 0
7y = 8x - 12
y = (8/7)x - 12/7
The intercept is b = -12/7. The point is (0,-12/7).
