Answer:

Find the x and y intercepts and draw a line through them.

Explanation:

If you have the equation of a line in standard form #ax+by =c#, then
you can find the #x and y#-intercepts really easily.

To find the #x#-intercept, make #color(red)(y=0)#

#x-color(red)(y) =8#
#x-color(red)(0) =8" "larr# solve for #x#
#x=8" "larr# this is the #x#-intercept

To find the #y#-intercept, make #color(blue)(x=0)#

#color(blue)(x) -y =8#

#color(blue)(0) -y =8" "larr# solve for #y#
#-y=8#

#y = -8" "larr# this is the #y#-intercept
graph{x-y=8 [-16.79, 23.21, -16.56, 3.44]}
