Answer:The number of members when the gym opened.

Step-by-step explanation:The y-intercept is the value of y when x = 0. Since x is the number of weeks the gym has been open, x = 0 represents the time when the gym has been open 0 weeks: the point in time that the gym opened.

Since y represents the membership,

the y-intercept represents the membership at the time the gym opened.
