# How do you find the slope and intercept for x-4y=-8?

Mar 28, 2017

$\text{Slope} = \frac{1}{4}$
$\text{Intercept} = 2$

#### Explanation:

$x - 4 y = - 8$

Isolate y in the equation to get slope-intercept form of the equation:

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

Divide each side by $- 4$:
$y = \frac{1}{4} x + 2$

$m = \frac{1}{4}$
$b = 2$
