## Intermediate Algebra (6th Edition)

RECALL: (i) In $y=\log_b{x}$, $b\gt 0$. (ii) The logarithmic functions are asymptotic (does not touch) to the y-axis. (iii) The y-intercept is the point where the graph of a function touches the y-axis. The given function is logarithmic therefore its graph is asymptotic to the y-axis. Since the function's graph does not touch the y-axis, then the function has NO y-intercept.
