    if you change the equation a bit, it'd be y= -5x/2 + 10, so the slope is -5/2

    @dmezzullo Basically, you have to get the equation in the form \(y = \rm something...\)

    get the equation y+something, and the constant (or numerical) part with x (with its sign) will be the slope

    @dmezzullo Do you know what it means to "solve" for a variable?

    No, like solving for \(y\) means to get \(y\) on the left side and the other junk on the right

    Heh, so get \(y\) on the left and the other junk on right.
