Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1m is the slope is If you look at the equation y = 5/2x + 2, can you see how it's the same format?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So if you compare it to the format of y=mx+b, and if "m" represents the slope, can you find the slope of y = 5/2x + 2?
