    Hi Guys.
    I have a certain function f(x) that crosses y-axis at the point (0,12) and i move it 2 units horizontally f(x-2) in the positive direction, does the y intercept become (2,12)?? i get a value of y intercept at (0,126) in the new equation tho when i plug in zero for x to find value of y.
    im not sure which one is the new y intercept, (0,126) or (2,12)? thanks

    Does a y-intercept of (2, 12) make sense? Think about it - what is the definition of a y-intercept? It's when x = 0.

    So does saying that when x=0, we have ( x=2 and y = 12)?

    When you translate the function, the point (-2, 126) becomes (0, 126) which is your y-intercept.
