To find the slope and intercept of the equation 4x - 8y = 8:

- Solve the equation for y to put it in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b), where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
- Subtract 4x from both sides: -8y = -4x + 8.
- Divide both sides by -8 to isolate y: y = (1/2)x - 1.
- Now, the equation is in the slope-intercept form, where the slope (m) is 1/2 and the y-intercept (b) is -1.

So, the slope is 1/2 and the y-intercept is -1.
