    Have learned about the "slope-intercept" form of a line?

    the slope-intercept form is y = mx + b where m is the slope

    Put 2y - 5x = 14 into the form y = mx + b then m will be the slope that the question is asking for.

    2y - 5x = 14 2y = 5x + 14 y = ( 5/2)x + 14/2 y = m x + b What is m?

    Correct! That is the slope of the graph of 2y - 5x = 14.
