Write an equation of the line satisfying the given conditions. Slope=0 yintercept 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=yintercept=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.
