Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form, The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: #y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

#y = color(red)(-6)x + color(blue)(8)#

Therefore:

  • The Slope Is: #color(red)(m = -6)#

  • The #y#-intercept Is: #color(blue)(b = 8)# or #(0, 8)#
