    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
