$y = \textcolor{red}{7} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Use the slope-intercept formula to solve this problem.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the values from the problem gives:

$y = \textcolor{red}{7} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{2}$
