Answer:
The slope is 1/2 and the y intercept is 7/4
Stepbystep explanation:
2x4y+7=0
To find the slope, we need to put the equation in slope intercept form
y = mx+b
So we need to solve for y
Subtract 2x from each side
2x2x4y+7=02x
4y +7 = 2x
Subtract 7
4y+77 = 2x7
4y = 2x7
Divide by 4
4y/4 = 2x/4 7/4
y = 1/2 x +7/4
The slope is 1/2 and the y intercept is 7/4
