Step-by-step explanation is given below.

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form of a straight line is

The equation given for us is

#color(Green)(y=4-5x#

Let us rewrite it in

#color(Green)(y=-5x+4#

#color(Maroon)(y=mx+b#

Now let us compare and find the value of

#color(Maroon)m=color(Green)(-5#

#color(Maroon)b=color(Green)(4#

The slope is

The
