Below is the slope intercept form:
y = mx + b
where: m = slope; b = y-intercept.
Using the above format,
y = 7x + 2
m = 7 ; b = 2
The slope of the equation is 7.
The y-intercept of the equation is 2.

y=mx+b is the formula.
m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y-intercept is when x is 0 and x-intercept is when y is 0. So if x is 0, y=m(0)+b which is y=b. So on the graph y will be b when x is 0.
So in y=7x+2, 7 is the slope and 2 is the y-intercept.
