9x+7y=8

The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

y=mx+b

Subtract 9x from both sides of the equation.

7y=8-9x

Divide each term by 7 and simplify.

Divide each term in 7y=8-9x by 7.

7y7=87+-9×7

Cancel the common factor of 7.

Cancel the common factor.

7y7=87+-9×7

Divide y by 1.

y=87+-9×7

y=87+-9×7

Simplify 87+-9×7.

Move the negative in front of the fraction.

y=87-9×7

Reorder 87 and -9×7.

y=-9×7+87

y=-9×7+87

y=-9×7+87

Rewrite in slope-intercept form.

y=-97x+87

y=-97x+87

Using the slope-intercept form, the slope is -97.

m=-97
