The video states that the y-int. would be + 4, but wouldn't it actually be -4?
Derived from 8/-2 = -4

I know it's irrelevant to the answer, but wanted the clarification.

Hi Alison! You're totally correct that the y intercept should actually be -4. Thanks for pointing that out!

It may take some time for this video to be revised to fix that mistake, especially because, and as you mentioned, it doesn't impact the answer itself. That said, I've made a note of it to our content team :)
