-3x*4y=7 would be linear. That equation can be turned into a slope-intercept form if simplified without any exponents nor absolute values.

Unfortunately, limitations of the browser used by Answers.com means that we cannot see most symbols. It is therefore impossible to give a proper answer to your question. Please resubmit your question spelling out the symbols as "plus", "minus", "equals", "squared", "cubed" etc. There is no visible operator between 3x4y unless some of them are meant to be powers. Also, it is necessary to know the feasible region. But since you have not bothered to provide that information, I cannot provide a sensible answer.

3x + 4y = 5To find the x-intercept, let x = 03(0) + 4y = 54y = 5y = 5/4The line passes through (0, 5/4), so y-intercept is 5/4.To find x-intercept, let y = 03x + 4(0) = 53x = 5x = 5/3The line passes through (5/3, 0), so x-intercept is 5/3.Plot (0, 5/4) and (5/3, 0). Draw a straight line through them.Or,3x + 4y = 53x - 3x + 4y = 5 - 3x4y = -3x + 54y/4 = (-3x + 5)/4y = (-3/4)x + 5/4So the slope will be -3/4 and the y-intercept is 5/4; (0, 5/4)We find the x-intercept when y = 0, so0 = (-3/4)x + 5/40 - 5/4 = (-3/4)x + 5/4 - 5/4-5/4 = (-3/4)x(-5/4)/(-3/4) = [(-3/4)x]/(-3/4)5/3 = x ; (5/3, 0)Thus, the line passes through the points (0, 5/4) and (5/3, 0).
