    then this equalls y=-3x+4 because i bring down the 4 in the equation as stated in the problem correct?

    So my answer for slope intercept should be y=-3x+4?

    6+y=5 is the original along with the 4 as y intercept

    6+y=5? So y=-1?

    yes, so the slope is 0

    the line you are looking for needs to have a slope of 0 and cross the y axis at 4

    no, your original line had a slope of zero. so your answer should b y=4
