# How do you write an equation of a line given Slope= 8, y-intercept= (0,-10)?

May 19, 2016

y = 8x - 10

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{ sope-intercept form}}$ is

$\textcolor{red}{| \overline{\underline{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} |}}}$
where m is the slope and b, the y-intercept.

Here the slope is 8 and the y-intercept is - 10

Substitute these values into the equation to obtain.

$\Rightarrow y = 8 x - 10$
