The points where a line drawn on a rectangular-coordinate-system graph intersect the vertical and horizontal axes.
To include between; as, that part of the line which is intercepted between the points A and B.
A part cut off or intercepted, as a portion of a line included between two points, or cut off two straight lines or curves.
The points where a graph crosses an axis. This can be found by setting one of the independent variables to zero, and computing the value of the function there.
The x-intercept of a line or curve is the point where it crosses the x-axis, and the y-intercept of a line or curve is the point where it crosses the y-axis.
the value of y at which a line crosses the vertical axis.
The constant ( a or b0) in a regression equation. It is the point where the regression line intercepts the axis when x = 0.
(constant) (of a regression equation): A base value added to every predicted value (y) when estimating from predictors values (x) in a regression situation. It is the value of y when x = 0.0. [See regression equation, scattergram, slope
the point at which a line intersects a coordinate axis
point where two lines cross, particularly where a graph cuts the axis. Because the straight line had a small positive intercept, was greater than zero even when was zero.
That portion included between two points in a borehole, as between the point where the hole first encounters a specific rock or mineral body and where the hole enters a different or underlying rock formation.
The point at which two straight lines, such as the extension of two roadway edges, cross each other; the apex of the angle formed by two straight lines which cross. Also called point of intersection.
The point at which the line generated by regression analysis crosses the y axis.
The -intercept is the point where a curve or a line meets the -axis. The -intercept is the point where a curve or a line meets the -axis.
the value of a variable when all other variables in the equation equal zero (0). On a graph, the values where a function crosses the axes.
The intercept point is based on a best-fit regression line plotted through the known x-values and known y-values. The regression shows the trend line. In this report it is the midpoint of courts.
Intercept is the distance from the origin to the point at which a curve or line crosses an axis.
In a regression equation, the predicted value of Y when X is equal to zero.
For linear or semi-log graphs, the value of the ordinate (vertical) coordinate of a graph when the abscissa (horizontal) is zero. For log-log graphs, the value of the ordinate when the abscissa equals 1. It is also called the Y-intercept. It has the units of the ordinate. See slope, X-intercept, Y-intercept.
