Answer:

#slope= Gradient = (9/7)#
y-intercepts = 8
x- intercept = #56/9#

Explanation:

The linear function is given in the form:

#y = mx + c#
where m is the slope/gradient, c is the y intercept.

Hence
#slope= Gradient = (9/7)#
y-intercepts = 8

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0,
y= #9/7#x + 8
0 = #9/7#x + 8
x = #((-8)*7)/9#
x= #56/9#
