# How do you write the equation in slope intercept form given (0, 8) with a slope of -2/3?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

This is easiest equation to find because all the information you need is given.

The slope is stated as such.

The point that is given is actually the y-intercept because the x-co-ordinate is 0. so,

Plug the values into

``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````

If any other point is given and you know the slope, there is a nifty formula for the equation of a line which applies in just such a case where we are given the slope and one point.

Using this formula requires only ONE step with substitution and some easy simplifying. Works like a dream...

Substitute the given values and simplify.
