    Add 3x to both sides of the equation: 3x+y=8-3x+3x you get 3x+y=8. Subtract 8 from both sides 3x+y-8+8-8 and you get the equation you want to work with: 3x+y-8=0

    Are you solving for the intercepts or are you doing a solution table?

    You are looking for the y axis amount that corresponds in the function table with the 0?

    OK.....plug the 0 into the equation in place of the x and solve for y. That will give you the y coordinate that you are looking for.
