Given slope m= 0.25

and the line passes through the point (x,y)= (0, 4)

the slope-intercept form of a line is

y= mx+b

from the above we know m = 0.25 = 1/4, so the line equation isĀ 

y= (1/4)x+b--------------(1)

we need to find the value of b , as the line passes through the point

(x,y)= (0, 4 ) , then on substituting we get

4 =0+b

=> b = 4

so the equation of the line is

`y = (1/4)x +4`
