a) Slope intercept form means that y needs to be by itself. First, add 5 to both sides of the equation. You will have x + 5 = 4y. Then, divide all terms by 4. (1/4)x + (5/4) = y is now in slope intercept form! 

b) The slope is the number being multiplied to x (1/4), and the y-intercept is the constant (5/4)
