Write the equation in slope-interest form and identify the slope and the 7 intercept. 2x-5y+10=0

I think you meant slope- intercept form.

The equation of a line is y=mx+b

y= how far up

x= how far along

m= slope (steepness of the line)

b= y intercept (where the line crosses the y axis)

To get the equation in slope intercept form

2 xs+5y+10=0

First, we need to move 5y to the right side of the equation so that the y variable is isolated.

2x +5y-5y+10= -5y

Leaves 2x+10= -5y

Then we need to flip the equation around to read

-5y= 2x+10

To solve for y we use the inverse operation of division. we will divide -5y by -5. Remember, you have to perform the same operation for all terms on both sides of the equations.

Therefore: -5y/-5= 2x/-5 + 10/-5 = y = 2/-5 x -2

The slop-intercept form of this equation will be y= 2/-5 x - 2

The slope will be -2/5

The y-intercept will be -2

## Comments

I think you copied the problem wrong. You have 5x + 2y = 10, but the original says 5x - 2y = 10.
