# How do you write an equation of a line given Slope: -3/4; y-intercept: (0, 8)?

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We can use the slope-intercept formula to write this equation. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the slope and value of the points from the problem gives:

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{3}{4}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{8}$
