Step 1

1 of 2$\text{Given function in problem : }f(x)=3462\cdot(0.925)^x$

$y$-intercept of any function is the point on the $y$-axis from where the graph of function intersect thus at $y$-intercept value of $x=0$.

So the $y$-intercept of the function $f(x)=3462\cdot(0.925)^x$ can be found out by putting $x=0$.

$f(x)=3462\cdot(0.925)^0=3462\cdot1=3462$

$\textbf{$y$-intercept : }(0,3462)$

$\textbf{In context of problem it means the initial population of town which means population of town in 1996}$
