Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To find the slope of any linear equation, write it in the form y = mx + b. In this case, you have x + y = 5. To find the slope rewrite it in slope intercept form as follows: x + y = 5 y = 5  x y = x + 5 The last form y = x + 5 is in the form y = mx + b, where m = 1. Therefore, the slope is 1.
