1) Solve the given equation for "y". The resulting equation will be in slope-intercept form, so you can immediately read off its slope. 2) Any line parallel to that line will have the same slope.

Yes, but only when the coefficient of y is 1. For example if the equation of the line is 3y = 2x + 5, then the slope is not 2. The equation has to be re-written as y = 2/3*x + 5/3 whence the slope IS 2/3

Slope of line: 3 Perpendicular slope: -1/3 Equation: y-2 = -1/3(x-0) => y = -1/3x+2

The slope is 5.

We know that the line passes through points (2, 2) and (0, 10) (since the y-intercept is 10).Using these two points, we can find the slope of the line,m = (10 - 2)/(0 - 2) = 8/-2 = 4/-1 = -4.Now by using the slope, m = -4, and the y-intercept, 10, we can write the equation of the line in the slope-intercept form, y = mx + b which isy = -4x + 10.
