    method1: shortcut. slope is -coefficient of x/coefficient of y when the equation is ax + by + c. method2: write the equation in the form of y=mx+c, compare and find m.

    divide the equation by 5 --> y=(-1)x - 4/5.. comapre with y=mx+c --> m=-1

    no.. i'm saying divide both sides of the equation by 5.. we have to do it becz its compulsory to make coefficient of y unity before comparing with y=mx+c
