# Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 56

#### Answer

The slope of the line is $\frac{1}{7}$ and the y-intercept is (0,0).

#### Work Step by Step

The equation $f(x)=\frac{1}{7}x$ is written in the slope-intercept form $y=mx+b$, where m is the slope of the line and the point (0,b) is the y-intercept. $m=\frac{1}{7}$ and $b=0$ Therefore, the slope of the line is $\frac{1}{7}$ and the y-intercept is (0,0).
