The line y = 3x + 5 crosses the y axis at ______?


When it crosses the y-axis x has to be 0, so what is y when x=0 in the equation
y = 3x + 5


Isn't it 5?


Hmm, you don't sound too confident with your answer, but yes, it's 5.
If you have an equation y=mx+b, m is the slope and b is the y intercept.
