Answer

Slope: $2$ $y$-intercept: $(0,\frac{7}{2})$

Work Step by Step

Rearrange the equation into slope-intercept form. $-4x+2y=7$ $2y=4x+7$ $y=2x+\frac{7}{2}$ The slope is the coefficient of $x$, and the constant term that is added is the $y$ value in the $y$-intercept of $(0,y)$. Slope: $2$ $y$-intercept: $(0,\frac{7}{2})$
