Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! Hope your day is going well!

4x-8y=16

All we have to do is get y by itself.

Step 1: subtract 4x from both sides

4x-8y=16

4x-4x-8y=-4x+16

-8y=-4x+16

Step 2: Divide by -8 to the whole equation to get y by itself

-8y=-4x+16

y=(-4/-8)x+16/8

Step 3: Simplify

y=(1/2)x+2

This is the final answer.
