Answer:

slope = - 1/2 and y-intercept = 7/2

Explanation:

We know the slope-intercept form of an equation of a line

is y = mx + c where slope is m and y-intercept is c.

Here, we have to form 2x + 4y = 14 as per y = mx + c.

So, 4y = +(-2)x + 14 [divide both sides by 4]

or, #4/4*y = -2/4*x +14/4#

or, #y = -1/2*x + 7/2#

Hence the slope = - 1/2 and y-intercept = 7/2.
