## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

We know that $y=mx+b$, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. Using this, we find that the equation in slope intercept form is: $$3y=x-7 \\ y=\frac{1}{3}x-\frac{7}{3}$$ Thus, the slope is 1/3 and the y-intercept is -7/3.
