Answer:

see below

Explanation:

We have, #x+4y=4#
Re-arranging the terms,we get,
#y=-frac{1}4 xxx+1#
Comparing this to the general equation of the form #y=mx +c# where #c# indicates the #y-"intercept"# and #m# the slope,we get,
#m#=slope =#-frac{1}4# and #c#=y-intercept=1

If you put in #y#=0 in the main equation,you get #x#=4.
