#### 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"#

#"rearrange "4x+y=7" into this form"#

#"subtract "4x" from both sides"#

#rArry=-4x+7larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-4#
