Answer:

#y = color(red)(7)x + color(blue)(2)#

Explanation:

Use the slope-intercept formula to solve this problem.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

#y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the values from the problem gives:

#y = color(red)(7)x + color(blue)(2)#
