Could you rearrange the equation such that, it's of the form \[y=mx+c\] ?

rearrange it into the form of y = mx + c so 5x  2y = 10 5x + 20 = 2y 2y = 5x + 20 y = 5/2x +20/2 y = 5/2x + 10 now the m = gradient or slope that you can read from the last line of the rearranged equation so what is it?

try it yourself and then check with mine.

can you understand the steps I did?

5x  2y = 10 so we want y to be on one side so we will have to +2y on both sides 5x 2y + 2y = 10 + 2y 5x = 10 + 2y now we have to minus 10 on both sides 5x  10 = 10 10 + 2y 5x  10 = 2y now we are going to rewrite it 2y = 5x  10 this is same as the previous step but just swapping them around y = 5/2  10/2 divide both sides by 2 y = 5/2x  5

lets try an easier sample, say 2x + y = 1, and rearrange into the form on y= mx + c

slope is \[\frac{5}{2}\]

yes, @laxkid we figured that out already

I can see that you have trouble rearranging basic equations, so I think you should start by doing some exercises.
