# What is the slope-intercept form of a linear equation if the slope (m) is -2, and the the y-intercept (b) is 8?

Oct 2, 2017

$y = - 2 x + 8$

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = m x + b$,

where:

$m = \text{slope} ,$ and $b = \text{y-intercept}$

Given:

$m = - 2$

$b = 8$

$y = - 2 x + 8$
