First we need to put the equation in slope intercept form shown below:
where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. We will isolate the y variable as shown below:
So in the above equation the slope is equal to (-b/5). Since we are looking for a slope of 4 we will set it equal to 4 and solve for b:
