    First you have to set it up in y=mx+b form

    Solve for y. You will get something like: y = mx + b After comparing you will see that "m" is the slope.

    Slope is given by negative of x coefficient divided by y coefficient...

    Remember when you are given with one equation of Line: That is : \(ax + by = c\) Then, \[Slope = \frac{- (coefficient \; of \;x)}{Coefficient \; of \; y}\]
