    anotyher way to do this is to rearrange the equation to the form y = mx + c where m = slope

    5y + 6x - 2 = 0 5y + 6x = 2 5y = -6x + 2 divide through by 5 y = (-6/5)x + 2/5

    y=mx+y-intercept

    y = mx + c is called the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line m = slope and c = intercept on y-axis.

    its odd in US they write y = mx + b and in UK we write y = mx + c - it doesn't matter which you use of course.

    lol my lecture uses \[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\]

    that last equation is called the point-slope form - used if you know the slope and a point on the line
