Solution 1:

We can plug the point that's given into the equation y=mx+b. So we have

0=m(-14)+b

Then we have 3/7 as m because m represents the slope.

0=3/7(-14)+b

Then you need to solve the equation for b.

After you get the value for b then you put the slope and the value for b in the equation.

 

Solution 2:

We can instantly see that (-14, 0) is the y-intercept so we don''t need to solve for b we already know the value.
