Question

What is the y-intercept of the line y =negative 2 over 3 x ?

  1. negative 2 over 3
  2. 0
  3. 1
  4. 3 over 2

Hint:

Y-intercept of a given line is the value of y-coordinate where x = 0

The correct answer is: 0


    GIVEN-
    y = -2/3 x
    TO FIND-
    Y-intercept
    SOLUTION-
    We know that equation of a line in slope intercept form can be written as y = mx + c, where m = slope and c = y-intercept.
    Comparing the given equation i.e. y = -2/3x with y = mx + c, we get-
    y-intercept = c = 0

    FINAL ANSWER-
    Option 'b' i.e. '0' is the correct answer to the given question.
