2x + 3y = 5 So 3y = -2x + 5 or y = -2/3x + 5 Now that the equation is in standard form, you just read the slope off as the coefficient of x, ie slope = -2/3

Since the equation is written in the form y = mx + c, the slope is simply m. In this case, m = 2.

y - 2x is not an equation. If that is supposed to be y = 2x then the slope is 2. Or, written as a slope, would be 2/1

[ y = 2x + 5 ] has a slope of 2. [ y = 2 ] is a horizontal line ... its slope is zero. Their slopes are different, so they're not parallel.
