# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line 8y - 2x = -4?

See the explanation

#### Explanation:

$8 y - 2 x = - 4$

Convert it in the form of $y = m x + c$

Here , $m$ is the slope of the line and $c$ is the $y$-intercept.

$\implies 8 y = 2 x - 4$

Divide by $2$ both sides

$\implies 4 y = x - 2$

$\implies y = \frac{1}{4} x - \frac{2}{4}$

$\implies y = \frac{1}{4} x - \frac{1}{2}$

On equating with $y = m x + c$

$\implies m = \frac{1}{4} \left(\text{Slope}\right)$

$\implies c = - \frac{1}{2} \left(y - \text{intercept}\right)$
