The slope of a line is -2 and its x-intercept is (5,8). What is the y-intercept point of the line? Express your answer as an ordered pair.

The slope of a line is -2 and its x-intercept is \(P_1\)(5,8). What is the y-intercept point of the line?

Hello Guest!

\(y=m(x-x_1)+y_1\)

\(y=-2(x-5)+8\\ \color{blue} y= -2x+18\)

The y-intercept point of the line is (0,18)
