Answer:

#y = 1/2x - 1#

Explanation:

To use the slope intercept form of the equation, #y = mx + b#, first rearrange the equation so #x# is on the other side.

#-8y = -4x +8#

Divide both sides by -8, so #y# is singular.

This gives the slope intercept form of the equation where #1/2# is the slope (gradient) and #-1# is the #y# intercept.

#y = 1/2x -1#
