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

    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.
