Answer:

graph{y=-8x-1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
slope of #-8/1#
y-int# = (0,-1#)

Explanation:

#-1# is the intercept on the y axis, which the line passes through.
#-8# is the slope of the line.

In this case, since #m =-8=-8/1#,

from #(0,-1)# you must move down #8# units and then go right #1# unit to give a negative slope.

The the rule of slope is #"rise"/" run"# or #"change in y"/"change in x"#.
