Answer:

Step-by-step explanation is given below.

Explanation:

The slope intercept form of a straight line is #y=mx+b# where #m# is the slope and #b# is the #y-#intercept.

The equation given for us is

#color(Green)(y=4-5x#

Let us rewrite it in #color(Maroon)(y=mx+b# form

#color(Green)(y=-5x+4#
#color(Maroon)(y=mx+b#

Now let us compare and find the value of #m# and #b#

#color(Maroon)m=color(Green)(-5#
#color(Maroon)b=color(Green)(4#

The slope is #-5#
The #y-#intercept is #4#
