Answer:

Sloe of line is #3# and intercept on #y# axis is #7#.

Explanation:

Slop intercept form of equation of a line is #y=mx+c#, where #m# is the slope of the line and #c# is the intercept of the line on #y#-axis.

Hence to find slope and intercept for #6x+2y=14#, one should first solve for #y#. From the equation we get

#2y=-6x+14# or dividing each side by #2#, we get

#y=3x+7#

Comparing it with #y=mx+c#, we get

Sloe of line is #3# and intercept on #y# axis is #7#.
