Finding Slope and Y-intercept
What is the slope and y-intercept of each of the following equations?
5x - 2y = 10
y - 3 = 2/3x + 7
x = 4
y = 5© SolutionLibrary Inc. solutionlibary.com 9836dcf9d7 https://solutionlibrary.com/math/algebra/finding-slope-and-y-intercept-7ecj
...+c. c is the y-intercept (as described above) and m is the slope of the line.
1) 5x - 2y = 10
To calculate the slope of this line follow the following steps :-
subtracting the 5x from both sides, so we have :-
5x-2y-5x = 10-5x
-2y = 10-5x
Now multiplying both sides by -1/2, we have :-
(-1/2)(-2y) = -1/2 (10-5x)
y = -5 + 5/2x. (Now, changing into the ...
