Slope

y-intercept

x-intercept

#### Explanation:

Given -

#8x-2y=14#

It is in the form

#ax+by=c#

If a linear equation is in this form, then -

It slope is

In our case, we shall use this formula

#m=(-8)/(-2)=4#

To find the y-intercept put

#8(0)-2y=14#

#-2y=14#

#y=14/(-2)=-7#

To find the x-intercept put

#8x-2(0)=14#

#8x=14#

#x=14/8=7/4#
