https://courses.lumenlearning.com/waymakercollegealgebra/chapter/characteristics-of-parabolas/

The y-intercept is the point at which the parabola crosses the y-axis.

STEP 2: Find the y-intercept

Plug in x = 0 in the equation of the parabola y = x^{2}+ 5x + 4

to get y = 4 or (0,4). This is the y-intercept
