In y = 5 x + 6, is the 6 the y-intercept or the x-intercept?

y-interscepts happen when x = 0, since that's where all points on the y-axis lie. If we insert this, we get
y = 5 0 + 6 = 6
so the so-called constant term is the y-coordinate of the y-intercept.
Usually, y-intercepts are the ones that take the least effort to figure out.

Yes. In line y=mx+c, here c is the intercept on y-axis...just remind by keeping the fact c is independent of x, put x=0 on y-axis we get y=c.

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

Let f ( x ) = x 2 + x 6.
a. Write down the y-intercept of the graph of f.
how do we figure this out? I know f ( x ) means y, so do we use the quadratic formula? x 2 + x 6.
b. Solve f ( x ) = 0.
We plug 0 into the x’s in the original formula, right?

The gradient is m = 4 / 3, and the point given is ( 3 / 2 , 3 )
Let c be the y-intercept
y = m x + c
y = ( 4 / 3 ) x + c
If I substitute x and y from the point given, 3 = ( 4 / 3 ) ( 3 / 2 ) + c and look for c, I get c = 5
But according to my answer sheet, c = 33 / 8 by using y y 1 = m ( x x 1 )
Why are the two methods giving different answers?

Let say in x,y dimension if a line cross over the x-axis instead of y (as shown in image above, unlike y=mx+c ) then how equation will change or will the equation has any impact apart from the x-intercept in this case? Is this a valid case?
