#### Answer

$\text{Slope: } -1 \\\text{$y$-intercept: } 4$

#### Work Step by Step

The given equation is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=4-x \\\\ y=-x+4 .\end{array} Using $y=mx+b$ (where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept) or the Slope-Intercept Form of linear equations, then the equation, $y=-x+4 ,$ has the following properties: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Slope: } -1 \\\text{$y$-intercept: } 4 .\end{array}
