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
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
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
