Answer:

slope = -7, y-intercept (0, 4)

Explanation:

#y = mx + b#
so m is the slope that is -7 in the equation #y = -7x + 4#

To find y-intercept, let x = 0

#y = -7(0) + 4 = 4#
(0, 4) is the y-intercept

Answer:

#"slope "=-7," y-intercept "=4#

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"#

#y=-7x+4" is in this form"#

#"with slope "=m=-7" and y-intercept "=b=4#
