See the entire solution process and answers below:

Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form. 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.

Therefore, for equation #y = color(red)(5)x - color(blue)(7)#

The slope is #color(red)(m = 5)#

The y-intercept is #color(blue)(b = -7)# or #(color(blue)(0, 7))#
