# How do you convert 8x - 4y = 16 into slope intercept form?

Apr 3, 2015

y= 2x-4

Rewrite the given equation as 4y= 8x-16 and divide by 4 on both sides to have y=2x-4. This is the required slope intercept form

The slope-intercept form is $y = m x + n$

$8 x - 4 y = 16$

$4 y = 8 x - 16$

$y = \frac{8}{4} x + \frac{16}{4}$

$y = 2 x + 4$
