Answer

true

Work Step by Step

The y-intercepts of the graph of an equation are the points on the y-axis where the graph crosses or touches the y-axis. Since the points are on the y-axis, then these points have the coordinates $(0, y)$. Thus, to find the y-intercepts, let $x=0$ and then solve for the value of $y$. Therefore, the given statement is true.
