Slope = - 5/3

The slope is -5/3.

Convert the equation to the standard slope intercept form of y = mx + c, where the value of m is the slope. -5x + 3y = 3 3y = 5x + 3 y = 5/3x + 1 Then the slope is 5/3.

5x -3y = -6 -3y = -5x -6 y = 5/3x+2 in slope intercept form

This question is missing crucial information. Specifically the mathematical operators... as in +, -, x, /,=... and so on. POSSIBLE INTERPRETATIONS OF QUESTION: 5x-3y=6 ---> SLOPE= 5/3 5x+3y=6 ---> SLOPE= -5/3 5x*3y=6 ---> SLOPE= Not Applicable (Rational Function) 5x/3y=6 ---> SLOPE= 5/18 5x=3y-6 ---> SLOPE= 5/3 5x=3y+6 ---> SLOPE= 5/3 5x=3y*6 ---> SLOPE= 5/18 5x=3y/6 ---> SLOPE= 10/1 I hope one of these worked.

First, it would be beneficial to change the equation into slope-intercept form: (y = mx +b) 5x + 3y = 6 -5x -5x [add -5 to both sides] 3y = -5x+6 [divide everything by 3] y = -5/3x +2 Since "m" represents the slope, we can now see that the slope is equal to -5/3
