The y-intercept of an equation is a point where the graph of the equation intersects the Y-axis. There are a few different ways to find the y-intercept with 2 points. Here is how you can find the Y-intercept with the equation from 2 points using the slope-intercept form.

## Equation from 2 points using Slope-Intercept Form

The Y-intercept with 2 points can be solved using the slope-intercept form in the equation. The point-slope form is .

## Steps

**Calculate the slope from 2 points**.For Example, Two points are (3, 5) and (6, 11)

**Substitute the slope(m)**in the slope-intercept form of the equation.**Substitute either point into the equation**. You can use either (3,5) or(6,11).**Solve for**, which is the y-intercept of the line.*b***Substitute b**, into the equation.
