# How do you find the slope and intercept of y= -8x - 7?

May 25, 2018

The slope is -8 and the y-intercept is $\left(0 , - 7\right)$

#### Explanation:

The standard slope form equation is $y = m x + b$ where:

m = slope
b= y-intercept.

So -8 is the slope and -7 is the y-intercept. But y-intercept is a point on he graph which is $\left(0 , - 7\right)$
