What is the slope of the line given by the equation below? 5y = -5x - 4 please help!
Oh, im sorry I dont know... I was never good at that stuff
oops thisn is the wrong question its What is the slope of the line given by the equation below? 5y = -5x - 4
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.
yea my teacher said the same but i still dont get it
divide the equation by 5 --> y=(-1)x - 4/5.. comapre with y=mx+c --> m=-1
so your sayin divide 5 by 4/5
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
I got the answer already its 2
well i already explained it. you have the answer, i have the logic. i would rely on the latter!
