$\text{Slope: } -\dfrac{2}{7} \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } 5$
Using $y=mx+b$ where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y-$intercept, then the equation $y=-\dfrac{2}{7}x+5$ has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Slope: } -\dfrac{2}{7} \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } 5 .\end{array}
