Where the line crosses the y-axis is known as the y-intercept, and x = 0. The x-intercept is where the line crosses the x-axis and y = 0. This will give you two points on your line. Determine the y-intercept, where x = 0.
Divide both sides by -4.
Where y = 0, find the x-intercept.
So now you have two points on your line with the y-intercept and x-intercept: (0, 2), representing ; and (-8, 0), representing . Now that you have two points on the line, you can determine the slope, m, using the equation = . For this line: = The following is a graph of the line showing the y-intercept of 2 and the x-intercept of -8.
