# Given 8x +4y= 4, how do you identify the slope and y-intercept?

Nov 15, 2016

$y = - 2 x + 1$

Slope$= - 2$
Y intercept$= 1$

#### Explanation:

To find the slope and y-int, put it into slope-intercept form by isolating y.

$8 x + 4 y = 4$

Subtract $8 x$ from each side:
$4 y = - 8 x + 4$

Divide each side by $4$:
$y = - 2 x + 1$

Slope$= - 2$
Y intercept$= 1$
