## How to Use the Y-Intercept Calculator?

The procedure to use the y-intercept calculator is as follows:

Step 1: Enter the coefficients A, B, C of the standard equation in the respective input field

Step 2: Now click the button “Solve ” to get the y-intercept

Step 3: Finally, the y-intercept of the standard equation will be displayed in the output field

### What is Meant by Y – Intercept?

For any given line segment with the equation Ax+By=C, the intercept is calculated by putting the value of x equal to zero, since when the line cuts the y-axis, the abscissa becomes zero. Putting the value of x = 0, the equation we  obtain is,

y=C/B

Here y is the intercept of the line segment given by the equation Ax+By=C, which is the ordinate of the point which lies on the Y-axis.
