# How do you find the slope and intercept of #8x + 4y = -96#?

##### 2 Answers

y-intercept=-24

#### Explanation:

Dividing both sides by 4 we have

Comparing this with slope imtercept form

Slope=-2 and y-intercept

x-intercept can be had by putting y=0 in the equation

So x-intercept=-12

Slope =

#### Explanation:

We can see that 4 is a factor common to all the terms in the given equation.

Divide both sides by 4:

This can also be written as

**First, we will find the slope**

The equation of a line is of the form

Where,

Comparing

The

Therefore, the

**Next, we find the intercepts**

We have already found the

The

Pretty simple.

Here is a step-by-step to work out the
