The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Find the values of m and b using the form y=mx+b.
m=-43
b=-8
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: -43
y-intercept: -8
Slope: -43

f(0)=-3(4⋅(0))3(1)-8
Cancel the common factor.
f(0)=-3(4⋅(0))3⋅1-8
Rewrite the expression.
f(0)=-4⋅(0)1-8
Divide 4⋅(0) by 1.
f(0)=-(4⋅(0))-8
f(0)=-(4⋅(0))-8
f(0)=-(4⋅(0))-8
Multiply 4 by 0.
f(0)=-0-8
Multiply -1 by 0.
f(0)=0-8
f(0)=0-8
Subtract 8 from 0.
f(0)=-8
The final answer is -8.
