Answer:

slope: #(-8)#
y-intercept: #4#

Explanation:

Any equation in the form:
#color(white)("XXX")y=color(red)(m)x+color(blue)(b)#
is in a form called the "slope intercept form" with a slope of #color(red)(m)# and a y-intercept of #color(blue)(b)#

#y=color(red)(-8)x+color(blue)(4)# is in this form
with slope #color(red)(m=-8)# and y-intercept #color(blue)(b=4)#
