What is the *y*-intercept of this parabola? Although the *y-*intercept is hidden, it does exist. Use the equation of the function to find the *y*-intercept.

y= 12x^{2}+ 48x+ 49

The *y*-intercept has two parts: the *x*-value and the *y*-value. Notice that the x-value is always 0. So, plug in 0 for *x* and solve for *y*.

*y*= 12(0)^{2}+ 48(0) + 49 (Replace*x*with 0.)*y*= 12 * 0 + 0 + 49 (Simplify.)*y*= 0 + 0 + 49 (Simplify.)*y*= 49 (Simplify.)

The *y*-intercept is (0, 49).
