Slope:

#### Explanation:

The general slope-intercept form for a linear equation is

with slope

The given equation

is in this form with slope

If the

the

slope

The x-intercept is

#### Explanation:

Remember that

This equation is therefore already in the form

The slope is 10 (the numerical coefficient of x) and the y-intercept is -7 (c)

To find the x-intercept, make y = 0 and solve for x
