8-9.

This equation, rewritten, is the same as saying:

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

Rewrite the equation in *y* = *mx* + *b* form, then identify the slope and the *y*-intercept.

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

Remember that *y* = −2 is a horizontal line.

Because it is horizontal, the line has zero slope and the *y*-intercept is given right in the equation, −2.
