Answer:

The slope is #color(red)(m = 2)#

Explanation:

Because this equation is already in the slope-intercept form we can obtain the slope directly from the equation.

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.

Or, for this equation:

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

Therefore the slope is #color(red)(m = 2)#
