Answer:

#"slope" = m = 0#; #" "y#-intercept #(0, 7/3)#

Explanation:

Given: #3y = 7#

The slope - intercept form of a line: #y = mx + b#,

where #m# = the slope and #b# is the #y#-intercept #(0, b)#

Put the given equation in slope - intercept form by dividing both sides of the equation by #3#:

#3/3 y = 7/3#

#y = 7/3" " => " "y = 0x +7/3#

This is a horizontal line. They have slope #= 0#.

This means #"slope" = m = 0#; #" "y#-intercept #(0, 7/3)#
