The Y axis is when x = 0

so placing x = 0 in the given equation produces
2 * 0 - 3y = -8
therefore -3y = -8
3y = 8
y = 8/3
y = 2.667 (to 3 dp)

I thought the same, but some Scottish schools have gone back already.

Well shortstuffO3 , was that what you wanted? You haven't acknowledged my reply. Was this for your maths homework?
