Answer:

Arrange the equation in to the form of #y = mx + c# and equate values: here, gradient = 3 and (#y#) intercept = -7

Explanation:

As it happens, this equation is already in the correct form of #y = mx + c#. This makes finding the gradient and #y# intercept easy, as in this form, gradient = #m# and y intercept = #c#

Hence, #m# = 3 and #y# = -7
