    Check the given Eq. Should it be
    y = x + 4 ? (6 , 7).

    m1 = 1 = Slope of given Eq
    y = mx + b
    7 = 1*6 + b,
    Solve for b:
    7 = 6 + b,
    Subtract 6 from eaqch side:
    1 = b or
    b = 1.

    Eq: y = 1x + 1

    If your given Eq is different, use this as a guide or Repost it.
