Slope=4

Intercepts=(0,2), (-0.5, 0)

#### Explanation:

To find out the slope (Gradient), make y the subject.

y=mx+c is the equation of a line and m is the number you're looking for for the slope.

Therefore 4 is the number in front of x so the slope is positive 4.

Intercept is a point where the line crosses the axis.

In order t find out the intercepts, we make y or x equal to 0, as when the line crosses the x-axis, y=0 and when it crosses the y-axis, x=0.

Let x=0,

so

Let y=0

Make x the subject.
