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?

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