#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)" slope-intercept form"" is"#

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(a/a)|)))#

where m is slope and b, the y-interceptHere b = 8 and slope

#=-1/4# Substituting these values into the equation gives us:

#y=-1/4x+8#
