Concept

Intercept

The intercept of a line is the coordinate of the point where the line crosses the axis. The intercept of a line is the coordinate of the point where the line crosses the axis. The intercept of an equation is also known as its initial value.

When talking about functions, the intercepts are the zeros of the function. Sometimes, only one coordinate of these points is referenced. For example, if the intercept lies at it can be said that the intercept is at The same is true for the intercept. A relation can have several intercepts. A function can have multiple intercepts, but it can only have one intercept.
