    i thought the x would equal 0 when u solve for x

    no, start by subtracting 5x from both sides

    5x -3y=-6 -5x = -5x ----------------- -3y =-6-5x

    the equation of a line is given by: y= mx +c where m is the gradient (slope) and C the y -intercept, rearrange your equation in this format and you'll get an answer. so 5x - 3y = -6 becomes -3y = -5x - 6 3y = 5x + 6 y = 5/3 x + 2 so whats your slope?

    -6/-3 - 5x/-3 =2 + 5/3x

    number next to x is slope , other one is y intercept
