Answer:

Slope: #8#
y-intercept:#0#

Explanation:

We can find our slope and our y-intercept by putting this equation in slope-intercept form, that is, #y=color(red)mx+color(blue)b#, where

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

We can start by subtracting #8x# from both sides to get:

#-y=-8x+0#

We can divide all terms by #-1# to get:

#y=color(red)8x+color(blue)0#

The coefficient of #x#, #8#, is the slope and the y-intercept is at #0#.

Hope this helps!
