Find the slope and the y-intercept.
y=5x

I know the slope would be 5, but what would the y-intercept be??0

Graphing it is always a good way to check.

Remember that y=mx+b

b is the y intercept. Is there is no b then it would be zero.

The other way to find the y intercept is to make x=0 and solve.
