$-4$; $3$
RECALL: The equation $y=mx+b$, where m = slope and b = y-intercept, is called the slope-intercept form of a line's equation. The given equation has $m=-4$ and $b=3$. Thus, the given line has a slope of $-4$ and a y-intercept of $3$. Therefore, the missing expressions in the given statement are: $-4$; $3$
