$\text{slope: } 2 \\\text{$y-$intercept: } 4$
The given function, $g(x)=2x+4 ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l} y=2x+4 .\end{array} Using $y=mx+b$ (or the Slope-Intercept Form), where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y-$intercept, then the equation above has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l} \text{slope: } 2 \\\text{$y-$intercept: } 4 .\end{array}
