(0, 8) is the y-intercept.

#### Explanation:

The linear equation is the equation of straight line.

The general equation of a straight line is $y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the slope of the line and $c$ is the y-intercept.

Thus, the y-intercept is expressed as (0, c). That is where the graph intercepts the y-axis (thus, the x value would be 0).

The graph of this line is given below :-
