I am having trouble finding the slope and y intercept of the following equation:

y=-4/7x-8(I apologize I cannot format correctly; it is y=negative four over seven x minus 8)Any help is appreciated!

Any linear function of the form y = mx + c has m as its slope and c as its y intercept.

y = mx + b, where m = slope and (0, b) is the y-intercept.

y = -4/7x + -8

m = -4/7

b = -8
