Using  the intercept method  first we will find the intercept form of the line

the intercept form is

`x/a +y/b = 1`

where a and b are the x and y intercepts respectively

as given

x intercept (-4),

y intercept  4

so, a = (-4) , b = 4

so the equation of the line in intercept form is

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

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

=> `y-x=4`

=> `y=x+4`

=> y = x+4 is the slope intercept from
