If you subtract x from the right side, how can the x be positive.
anonymous
  • anonymous
not quite.. subtract the x from both sides to isolate the y so you can get to the form of y=mx+b :)

NOw u have y=mx+b form m is the slope so...
anonymous
  • anonymous
autumn...wher'd u go?
anonymous
  • anonymous
y=-x/5+9/5 complete answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats the equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
m is the slope... so
anonymous
  • anonymous
your slope is -1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
im guessing the slope is 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh -1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok let me help u understand
anonymous
  • anonymous
-x/5 is -1/5x
anonymous
  • anonymous
yepp if there is nothing in front of the x it is a 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
-1/5 is the slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hope that helps
