# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=8?

Jun 12, 2016

It is a horizontal line, the slope is 0 and it crosses the y-axis at 8.

#### Explanation:

If an equation of a line does not have an x- term, it means it is a horizontal line.

It has a gradient of 0 (it does not slant at all) and the y-intercept is the number that is given.
All horizontal lines are written as $y = \ldots .$

All vertical lines are written as $x = \ldots .$
