#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "y+5x=7" into this form"#

#"subtract 5x from both sides"#

#ycancel(+5x)cancel(-5x)=7-5x#

#rArry=-5x+7larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#rArr"slope "=-5" and y-intercept "=7#

so lets compare it to the general equation,

so then,

p.s. c is the y intercept.:)
