For this question, let's isolate for x alone by subtracting 7 fromboth sides of the equation to get:
3x = -7
Now, divide both sides by 3 to isolate for the variable x alone toget:
x = 7 3
At this point, we have an equation, however, notice that y simplydoes not appear here. In fact, it never appeared in the original questionwhich means that y takes upon all values of this value of x.
Now, equations where x = a number, have graphs where we have avertical line at the x value going straight up and straight down[since it doesn't matter which y-value we hit].
Therefore, there is no y-interceptand no slope for this particular equation!

3x+7=0
3x+7=y
slope: because of 3x->
slope equal 3
y-int, let x=0
3(0)+7=y
y=7
y-intercept=7

Question about changing a logarithm's base
I've been using the following method to derive/remember the logarithm base conversion formula: If I want to convert loga(x) to an expression in base b, I say,
aloga(x)=x
logb(aloga(x))=logb(x)
loga(x)logb(a)=logb(x)
loga(x)=logb(x)logb(a)
It kind of feels like I'm working backwards, and I was wondering if there's a more direct way to go about it. I tried:
loga(x)=loga(blogb(x))
loga(x)=logb(x)loga(b)
but couldn't rid myself of the loga in the right-hand side of the equation. It occurred to me that if I could rewrite the "a" subscript as "blogb(a)", I might be onto something. (Or might not.) Does the notation ever get used like that, where you perform a substitution in a subscript?
