Slope = 5/3 = 1.66...

x = 8y = 6(5x8) + (3x6) = 58(5x8) - (3x6) = 22

2x - 3y = 6 2x = 6 + 3y 2x - 6 = 3y : 3y = 2x - 6 y = 2/3x - 2

-5x-4y = 6 -4y = 5x+6 Divide all terms by -4 y = -1.25x-1.5 Slope = -1.25 and intercept = -1.5

It is slope intercept form. The equation for slope intercept form is y=mx+b which is like your equation y=5x+6

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.

Slope = 5/3 = 1.66...

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

4x+3y = 6 3y = -4x+6 y = -4/3x+2 in slope intercept form

x = 8y = 6(5x8) + (3x6) = 58(5x8) - (3x6) = 22

If you mean: 3y = 15x+6 then y = 5x+2 whereas 5 is the slope and 2 is the y intercept

2x + 3y = 6 can be written in the standard slope-intercept form of y= mx + c, where 'm' is the slope. 3y = -2x + 6 y = -⅔x + 2 The slope of this linear graph is -⅔.

9x+3y = 6 3y = -9x+6 y = -3x+2 which is now in slope-intercept form

The slope is -5

-x + 3y = 6 3y = x 6 y = x/3 + 2 So slope = 1/3 and intercept = 2
