# What is the equation of a line, in general form, with a slope of -2 and a y-intercept of 8?

Mar 3, 2018

$y = - 2 x + 8$

#### Explanation:

Since the equation has a slope of -2 and a y-intercept of 8, we can write the equation in this form: y=mx+b

m will be the slope and b will be the y-intercept.

Substitute for the slope and y-intercept to get the answer
y=-2x+8
