$\text{Slope: } 3 \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } 7$
Using properties of equality, the given equation, $-3x+y=7$, is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=3x+7 .\end{array} Using $y=mx+b$ where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y-$intercept, then the equation above has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Slope: } 3 \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } 7 .\end{array}
