Starting with x = -2, substitute this into the equation and solve for y:

8y - 32(-2) = -64

8y + 64 = -64

8y = -64 - 64

8y = -128

y = -128/8

y = -16

Therefore, when x = -2, y = -16.

This can also be written as an ordered pair: (-2,-16)

Substitute each x into the equation to find its corresponding y, and plot the graph.

At the y-intercept, x = 0 so substitute this into 8y - 32x = -64, then solve for y:

8y - 32(0) = -64

8y = -64

y = -64/8

y = -8

So the y-intercept is -8
