# What do you know about a line given the y intercept?

All that you know is that it goes through that one point.

^And if you have the equation of the line in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b) the "b" is the y-intercept. For example, if a y-intercept was at (0, -8), then the equation would be y = mx - 8, but you'd need more information to determine "m." Wiki User
