    you need to isolate y on one side, and get everything else on the other side

    y=-6/7x + 8 is what I got.

    get your equation in the form y = mx+b. b is the y intercept and m is the slope

    58/7 is not 8

    Would I keep it as a decimal?

    it is up to you. generally, it is more elegant to keep as fraction

    So, -6/7 would be the slope and 58/7 would be the y intercept?
