INTERCEPT(Y,X)

Where Y is the dependent set of observations or data, and

Y is the independent set of observations or data.

This function calculates  the point at which a line will intersect the y-axis using the  available x-values and y-values.

·         An array contains text, logical values, or empty cells that are ignored; but, the cells with the value zero are included.

·          INTERCEPT shows the error value, when Y and X have a dissimilar number of data points.

Formulas:-

·          The equation to calculate the intercept of the regression line, a, is:

where b is the slope, and is calculated as:

and where x and y are the sample means AVERAGE(Y) and AVERAGE(X).
