In order to graph `32 - 2x = 8y,`
we could place equation into slope-intercept for which is `y = mx + b.`
Therefore, we would solve the equation for y by dividing everything by 8 and getting:
`y = -1/4x + 4.`
From this form, b = 4, which represents the y-intercept. "m" represents the slope, `(rise)/(run).`
From the y-intercept of 4 we could get other points on graph by using slope, in which rise = -1 and run = 4.
So, from the yintercept of (0, 4) we'd go down 1 and right 4 which would give us (4, 3).
Which woul give us this graph:
