Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

Compare the equation to the slope-intercept form of a line:

#y=mx+b#

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

Since the equation we are given does not contain an #x# we now that #m=0#. We also know that the y-intercept, #b#, is equal to #8#.

If a line has a slope equal to #0#, it must be horizontal. Also, in this case, it intercepts the y-axis at #7#.
