solve the equation for y. have y on the left side of the = sign. make sure there is no number to the left of y when you are finished solving it. once you have solved for y let me know and we can go from there.

3x5y = 45 5y = 453x // subtract the 3x from both sides i have it solved, but give it a go, and post your process step by step. if you get stuck just let me know.

ok, 5y = 453x // we found that y = (45/5)(3/5)x // I divided both sides by 5 y = 9 +(3/5)x // I divided both sides by 1 and simplified y = (3/5)x 9 // I just moved the (3/5)x and 9 around therefore, you can find the slope since y = mx+b where m is the slope if you are having trouble with this concept the khan academy is a great resource for learning math. khanacademy.org
