Slope and y-intercept formula is y=mx+b, where **b** = y-intercept and **m** = the slope of the line. So, in the problem for **cx + y = d**, **c** is a substitute for m and **d** is a substitute for b.

Solving for y-intercept .. the answer is **d**.

Solving for the slope .. y = -cx +d or **-c.**

In general the slope and intercept of `y=mx+b` is

m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

`cx+y=d` can be re written as

`cx+y = d`

`y= -cx+d`

The above equation the slope is `m= (-c) and b= (d)` is y intercept
