Slope:

y-intercept:

(see below for graph)

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is

Since the y-intercept is

the line goes through the point

and substituting some multiple of

Plot these two points on the Cartesian plane and draw a line through them for the required graph.

graph{(y-x/4)(x^2+y^2-0.01)((x-8)^2+(y-2)^2-0.01)=0 [-1.885, 13.915, -3.42, 4.48]}
