WHAT IS THE SLOPE AND Y-INTERCEPT OF THE LINE

7-1/5y-3x =

If you mean:

7 - (1/5) y - 3x = 0

when y = 0, x = 7/3, that is the x axis intercept

when x = 0, y = 35, that is the y axis intercept

to find the slope move the y to the right by adding y/5 to both sides

y/5 = 7 - 3 x multiply both sides by 5

y = -15 x + 35

that is now in the form

y = m x + b

where m, the slope, is -15
