x-8y=-56 if you guys can give me one example i could do the rest. Find the slope intercept

I'd change it to 8y=x+56. Then (since it's terrible to have a number in front of y) I'd divide the whole equation by 8. Now the equation is y=(1/8)x+7. The slope is always in front of x, which is (1/8). The y-intercept is the lonely number, which is 8. I hope this helps! :)

Hi Z

Anon make mistakes.

x-8y=-56

Rewrite it like this in slope intercept form

-8y = -56 - x

8y = 56 + x

Y= 7 + x/8

Y = x/8 + 7

y = 0.125x + 7

The slope is 0.125

The slope intercept is +7 This means the line cross the y at +7

I think this is right but one of the mods should check.

Best Answer

x - 8y = -56 let's put it in this form.....

8y = x + 56 divide both sides by 8

y = (1/8)x + 7

So...the slope is (1/8) and the y intercept is just (0, 7)....just as Dragonlance found !!!!

wow

maths been taking it easy going gold on me this year

ENGLISH is the one who took me to their Torture Lab

appearently I have to do a 'Passion Project' about making a "passionate" product

and so far, making a RPG game is complicating as scientific notation
