If point A is (-8,3) and point B is (-6,1) and slope is -1 what would the x and y intercepts be?

What would the equation be in standard form?

1. y -y1 = m(x-x1)

Use either point...

y-3 = -1(x+8
y-3= -1x -8
y = -x -5

Now, change to standard from
to find the x- intercept.. let y =0 and solve for x.
to find the y- intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y.
