#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "7x-14y=35" into this form"#

#"subtract "7x" from both sides"#

#rArr-14y=-7x+35#

#"divide all terms by "-14#

#rArry=1/2x-35/14larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=1/2" and y-intercept "=-35/14=-5/2#
