What is 2x=7?

Is it a standard form, or slope-intercept form, or not a linear equation? Can you explain what a standard form and a slope-intercept form is PLEASE!?

The standard form for a straight line is

y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept. Therefore, an equation, such as

y=15+4x can be rearranged to

y=4x+15. The slope is 4 and the y intercept is 15.
