## Transform the linear equation 4x−8y=24 to slope-intercept form.(1 point) Responses 4x−8y−24=0 4 x minus 8 y minus 24 equals 0 −8y=−4x+24 negative 8 y equals negative 4 x plus 24 4x−8y=24 4 x minus 8 y equals 24 y=12x−3

## To transform the linear equation 4x - 8y = 24 to slope-intercept form, we need to rearrange the equation to solve for y.

Starting with 4x - 8y = 24:

-8y = -4x + 24

Divide both sides by -8:

y = 0.5x - 3

Therefore, the equation in slope-intercept form is y = 0.5x - 3.
