Write an equation of the line satisfying the given conditions. Slope=0 y-intercept of 7.
My answer is: y=7x
Is this correct?
Thanks.

    Sorry, it is not correct.
    The general equation for a line is
    y=mx+b
    m=slope=0
    b=y-intercept=7

    Can you give it another try?

    Would it be x=7?

    Not quite.
    In the equation,
    y=mx+b
    you need to put the slope, m=0, and intercept, b=7 and see what you get.
    You would keep y where it is.

    Would it be y=7?

    Correct!
