See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form, The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

$y = \textcolor{red}{- 6} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{8}$

Therefore:

• The Slope Is: $\textcolor{red}{m = - 6}$

• The $y$-intercept Is: $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = 8}$ or $\left(0 , 8\right)$
