To show the work solve for Y.

5X + 3Y = 15

3Y = - 5X + 15

Y = (- 5/3)X + 5

======

Zero out the X and you see that the point is...,

(0, 5)

======Choice b ( not c! )

y-axis means x=0   (always)

x-axis means y=0   (always)

when line intersect y axis, then x = 0

5x + 3y =15

0 + 3y =15  ( x = 0)

3y= 15

y = 5

hence   point  (x,y) = (0,5)   b is correct

(0,5) will be the right answer.
