See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, put this equation in the slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore,

- The slope is:
#color(red)(m = 1/4)# - The
#y# -intercept is:#color(blue)(b = 5)# or#(0, color(blue)(5))#

#### 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 "-5+y=1/4x" into this form"#

#"add 5 to both sides"#

#y=1/4x+5larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=1/4" and y-intercept "=5#
