Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6To do so, it becomes : 10x  5y = 30 5y = 10x + 30 y = 2 x  6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.010x5y=30 to find the slope First we need to solve for 'y' that given equation subtract 10x on both sides 5y = 10x +30 divide by 5 on both sides y = 2x  6 We know the slope intercept form y = mx + b where m = slope b = yintercept y = 2x  6 compare this equation to slope intercept form y = mx + b Therefore , slope = m = 2 , yintercept = b = 6 Slope = 2 yintercept = 6
