Please find the slope and y-intercept of the line: y=-9/8x - -4/5

• Math -

y=mx+b
m=slope
b=y-intercept

thanks, i understand the formula, i don't understand what goes where. Can you show me steps.

get it?
y=(-9/8)x + (- -4/5)
y= (m)x + (b)

got it... just needed to be pointed in the right direct. thank you
