## anonymous 4 years ago What is the slope of the line 2x - 5y = -10? -5/2 5/2 2/5 -2/5 none of the above

1. anonymous

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

2. saifoo.khan

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

3. anonymous

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

4. anonymous

is equal to c

5. anonymous

Where??

6. anonymous

2/5

7. anonymous

im righ or wrong

8. anonymous

plz

9. anonymous

im pretty sure your right because -2/-5 id 2/5 so yes your right

10. anonymous

Absolutely right..

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