Answer:

see explanation below

Explanation:

#x + 4y = -8#

check #x-#intercept when #y =0#
#x + 4(0) = -8#
#x = -8#
therefore, #x-# intercept at #(-8,0)#

check #y-#intercept, when #x =0#
#0 + 4y = -8#
#4y = -8#
#y = -8/4 = -2#
therefore, #y-# intercept at #(0, -2)#

mark these 2 points of intercept and make a straight line through these 2 points.
