Slope: (-4/7)

y-intercept: (51/7)

#### Explanation:

4x+7y=51

It is important to take the first equation, in standard form, and change it to slope-intercept form.

First subtract 4x from each side:

4x-4x+7y=-4x+51

7y=-4+51

Next, divide each side by 7 because you want to make the equation equal to y:

y=
