Two parallel lines, the equation of the first line is
y = x 3.
The distance between the parallel lines is 0.5. How do I find the y-intercept of the second line?

Let x + y + k = 0 be an equation of the second line.
Thus,
| k 3 | 1 2 + 1 2 = 1 2 .

The slopes of the lines are 1. They make 45 with the negative x-axis. If the distance between the two lines is 1 2 , the difference between their y-intercepts should be 1 2 ÷ cos 45 . There are two possibilities. The second line may have a larger or a smaller y-intercept.

Two questions involving quadratics. Next to a diagram of a parabola with a ma point with the y intercept of ( 0 , p ) and roots ( 1 , 0 ) and ( p , 0 ) it says:3a) Show that the equation of the parabola is y = p + ( p 1 ) x x 2
3b) For what value of p will the line y = x + p be a tangent to this curve.

Function: f ( x ) = sin ( x ) x . Why is the y-intercept = 1 despite sin ( 0 ) being divided by zero?

Determine the y-intercept(s) of the level curve, where f ( x , y ) = 2 e 2 x 2 + y 2 and z = 4.
I started but setting 4 = f ( x , y ) then I solved for y and got 2 l n ( 2 ) 4 x 2 and I tried solving for y = 0. Is there a similar way to do this?

What is the formal or general term for the y-intercept? Is there a general term for the value at which a function intercepts the vertical axis, in the Cartesian plane?

Let f ( x ) = x 2 + 1 x 2 9
So to find the y intercept I take f ( 0 ) correct? So when I substitute 0 for x I got 1 9 so is the y intercept ( 0 , 1 9 )
Also to find the x intercept I set the numerator equal to 0. So then I got x 2 + 1 = 0 but wouldn't that make x 2 = 1 which is imaginary?
