## anonymous 4 years ago What is the slope of the line 2x – 5y = 12 ? A. two fifths B. five halves C. 2 D. negative twelve fifths

1. anonymous

do you know what is the general form of slope formula?

2. anonymous

no

3. anonymous

$\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}$

4. anonymous

it is y=mx+b where, b=constant and m=slope of the function and y=function and x=variable.

5. anonymous

2/5

now make your given function i.e. 2x-5y=12 according to the given form, separate y, then we got it as, y=(2/5)x-12/5 now compare with the given form, m=2/5, b=12/5 That's it. Regards Electronics engineer.
