If the equation $$y = 3x - 18$$ were graphed on the coordinate axes above, then the graph would cross the y-axis at the point (x, y) where

A. x = 0 and y = 18

B. x = 0 and y = -18

C. x = 0 and y = 6

D. x = 6 and y = 0

E. x = - 6 and y = 0

If the equation $$y = 3x - 18$$ were graphed on the coordinate axes above, then the graph would cross the y-axis at the point (x, y) where

A. x = 0 and y = 18

B. x = 0 and y = -18

C. x = 0 and y = 6

D. x = 6 and y = 0

E. x = - 6 and y = 0

KEY CONCEPT: The x-coordinate is 0 for all points on the y-axis.
So, we can automatically eliminate answer choices D and E, since they have x-coordinates that don't equal 0.

To determine the corresponding y-coordinate, we'll plug x = 0 into the equation for the line.
We get: y = 3(0) - 18 = 0 - 18 = -18

So, when x = 0, y = -18

Cheers,
Brent
