The distance of an intersecting point of a straight line and axis from origin of Cartesian coordinate system is called intercept.

Straight lines are interested with one or more axes. The distance of intersecting point from origin can be measured geometrically and the distance of them is known as intercept. Here are some intercepts with examples for basic knowledge.

The distance of an intersecting point of a straight line and horizontal axis from origin is called $x$-intercept.

The distance of an intersecting point of a straight line and vertical axis from origin is called $y$-intercept.
