Rewrite in slope-intercept form.
The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
Move all terms not containing y to the right side of the equation.
Subtract 2 from both sides of the equation.
Subtract 2 from 17.
Divide each term by 3 and simplify.
Divide each term in 3y=15 by 3.
Cancel the common factor of 3.
Cancel the common factor.
Divide y by 1.
Divide 15 by 3.
Using the slope-intercept form, the y-intercept is 5.
Find the Y-Intercept 3y+2=17
