Equation of line in intercept form is (x/a)+(y/b)=1; Where, a is x intercept and b is y intercept. Divide equation by ( -12) so that RHS =1. (X/3)+(Y/-2)=1. Y intercept is -2


Y intercept would be obtained by putting x=0, -4(0)+6 y =-12. i.e., y = -12/6 = -2.

Maths teacher

y intercept = -2


y = mx + c where, c is the y intercept. we have -4x +6y = -12 6y = 4x - 12 y = (4x/6) - 12/6 y = (4x/6) - 2. Therefore y intercept = -2.
