# How do you graph y-2=8 using the slope and intercept?

Jun 6, 2018

$y = 10$

#### Explanation:

$y - 2 = 8$

First, you want to get your equation closest to the $y = m x + b$ format as possible. To do this, we'll be solving the equation as a one step problem:

$y - 2 = 8$

Add $2$ to both sides to cancel out $- 2$. You should now have:

$y = 10$

Now, since this equation is on the $y$-axis, you'll be plotting your equation there. The slope is $0$ in this case, and your $y$-intercept will be $\left(0 , 10\right)$. Your line will be horizontal and continuous. Your graph will look like this:

graph{y = 0x + 10 [-29.34, 35.6, -4.15, 28.33]}
