Answer:

The slope is #4/1#
The intercept is 0

Explanation:

The slope intercept form of a linear equation is #y=mx+b#
where #m# is the slope and #b# is the y intercept.

For the equation #y=4x# or #y=4x+0#
the #m = 4# and the #b=0#

Remember that the slope is the rise over the run #(rise)/(run)# and therefore the slope for this equation would be #4/1#.
