...+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 ...
