Answer:

Slope: #(-7/2)#

y-intercept: #6#

Explanation:

Convert #14x+4y=24# into "slope-intercept form"

#color(white)("XXX")#Subtract #14x# from both sides
#4y = -14x+24#

#color(white)("XXX")#Divide both sides by #4#
#y=-14/4x +24/4#

#color(white)("XXX")#Simplify
#y=-7/2x+6#
#color(white)("XXX")#which is the slope intercept form with slope #=(-7/2)# and y-intercept #=6#
