#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "8x-5y=4" into this form"#

#"subtract "8x" from both sides "#

#-5y=-8x+4#

#"divide all terms by "-5#

#rArry=8/5x-4/5larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=8/5#
