5x-y=8

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

y=mx+b

Subtract 5x from both sides of the equation.

-y=8-5x

Multiply each term in -y=8-5x by -1

Multiply each term in -y=8-5x by -1.

(-y)⋅-1=8⋅-1+(-5x)⋅-1

Multiply (-y)⋅-1.

Multiply -1 by -1.

1y=8⋅-1+(-5x)⋅-1

Multiply y by 1.

y=8⋅-1+(-5x)⋅-1

y=8⋅-1+(-5x)⋅-1

Simplify 8⋅-1+(-5x)⋅-1.

Simplify each term.

Multiply 8 by -1.

y=-8+(-5x)⋅-1

Multiply -1 by -5.

y=-8+5x

y=-8+5x

Reorder -8 and 5x.

y=5x-8

y=5x-8

y=5x-8

y=5x-8

Rewrite in Slope-Intercept Form 5x-y=8
