#### Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form. 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.

Therefore, for equation $y = \textcolor{red}{5} x - \textcolor{b l u e}{7}$

The slope is $\textcolor{red}{m = 5}$

The y-intercept is $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = - 7}$ or $\left(\textcolor{b l u e}{0 , 7}\right)$
