DESCRIBE a linear EQUATION: slope, intercepts, etc
describes a sloping line. For any
equation ax+by+c = 0, slope is
X intercept is found by setting y to 0: ax+by=c becomes ax=c. that means that x = c/a. 24/-8 = -3.
Y intercept is found by setting x to 0: the equation becomes by=c, and therefore y = c/b. Y intercept is 24/3 = 8.
Slope is --8/3 = 2.66666666666667.
Equation in slope-intercept form: y=2.66666666666667*x+8.
