For the equation y = - ¼ x + 8. What is the slope and the y-intercept of the equation?
Weegy: y=-x+8 To find the x-intercept, substitute in 0 for y and solve for x. (0)=-x+8 Since x is on the right-hand side of the equation, [ switch the sides so it is on the left-hand side of the equation. -x+8=(0) Remove the parentheses around the expression 0. -x+8=0 Since 8 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 8 from both sides. -x=-8 Multiply each term in the equation by -1. -x*-1=-8*-1 Multiply -x by -1 to get x. x=-8*-1 Multiply -8 by -1 to get 8. x=8 To find the y-intercept, substitute in 0 for x and solve for y. y=-(0)+8 Multiply -1 by the 0 inside the parentheses. y=0+8 Adding 0 to an expression does not change the value of the expression. y=8 These are the x and y intercepts of the equation y=-x+8. x=8, y=8 ] User: What is the slope?
