Simplify and put it into slope-intercept form:
y=9x-15

From the above the slope is readily seen to be 9 and the y-intercept is -15.

If this is homework be sure to show your work.

### How to solve and graph the equation 4x+y+0

The easiest way to solve and graph and equation is to put the equation into the slope intercept form y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b in the y-intercept.

To do this, we subtract 4x from both sides and get y = -4x + 0.

From this we know m = -4 (slope) and the y-intercept is 0.

I always start with the y-intercept and put a point there. Thus, we have a point at (0,0). Using this as a starting point, we now use the slope of -4 to get future points. Since it is negative, we go one unit to the left and up four units. So we have the point (-1,4). Using a ruler, we connect these points and continue on both sides to produce the line.

There is also a great free online program/app called Desmos that you can use to check your work. Type in the equation of the line and it will graph it for you.

Good luck,

Paul

### What is the y-intercept of a line with an equation 8x-8+2y=0?

8x - 8 + 2y = 0
8X + 2Y = 8
y = -4x + 4
X = 0 por y-intercept
y=mx+b
Y = 8/2 or 4
Knock knock
Who's there?
4
4 who?
Why yall want me to do yall's homework 4?

Do the math on that! LOL

### 2X+4Y=-8

2x + 4y = -8 ; divide each side by 2
x + 2y = -4 ; subtract x from both sides
2y = -4 - x ; rearrange
2y = -1x -4 ; divide each side by 2
y = -1/2x - 2 ; relate to slope/intercept form of line (y=mx+b)

implies there are multiple solutions that fall along a line with slope -1/2 and y intercept of -2
