What is the y-coordinate of the point at which a graph intersects the y-axis?

It is called the y intercept

What is the y-intercept of a line on the coordinate plane?

It is the point where the line intersects the y-axis.

Is the line that crosses the y-axis called a y-intercept or a x-intercept?

A line is just a line, but the y-coordinate (the point where the line intersects the y-axis) is termed the y intercept. This point has an x coordinate that is always zero and the y coordinate can be positive, zero, or negative

What is the coordinate at which a graph intersects the y axis?

That depends on the value of the y intercept but in general it is at (0, y intercept)

Where a line intersects the y axis?

is called the Y-intercept

This y-axis is also called the?

The y axis is the vertical axis and a y coordinate is the 'ordinate' The x axis is the horizontal and a x coordinate is the 'abscissa'

The intersection of x and y axis on a coordinate plane?

The x-axis typically intersects the y-axis in a coordinate plane at the origin, or 0,0. One can renumber either or both axis, resulting in a different intersection point, but that is usually done only in specialized cases.

In an ordered pair it does not matter which number is called the x coordinate and which is called the y coordinate?

The first coordinate always is called the "x" coordinate, because it goes on the "x" axis, while the second coordinate is always called the "y" coordinate because it always goes on the "y" axis.

In the slope-intercept equation of a line which part of the equation gives the y-coordinate of the point where the line crosses the y-axis?

The slope intercept equation also called the y intercept equation. It isy=mx+b in which x and y are coordinates, m is the slope of the line, and b is the y-intercept. so b would be the y-coordinate that intersects the y-axis.

What is the point at which a graph intersects the y-axis?

A graph intersects the y-axis at the y-intercept; its x value is zero.

In a Cartesian coordinate system the horizontal axis is called the x axis and the axis is called the y axis?


Where intersects the x and Y in the coordinate system?

The x and y axes in the coordinate system intersects each at right angles at the point of origin which is at (0, 0)
