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

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