Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1move all terms to one side and the slope = ( coefficient of x/coefficient of y) = 5/2=5/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The slope of a line y = mx + c is m so in your case 2y = 105x, so : 2y =5x+10 so y = (5/2)x + 5 so m = 5/2 so slope is 5/2
