8-9.

For each line below, name the slope and -intercept.

This equation, rewritten, is the same as saying:

Knowing this information, can you identify the -intercept and the slope?

Rewrite the equation in form, then identify the slope and the -intercept.

The equation is already in + b form, so identify the slope and -intercept in the equation.

Remember that is a horizontal line.

Because it is horizontal, the line has zero slope and the -intercept is given right in the equation, .
