# How do you find the slope and y intercept for: 8x-y=0?

Apr 7, 2018

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, $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$, where

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

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

$- y = - 8 x + 0$

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

$y = \textcolor{red}{8} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0}$

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

Hope this helps!
