## anonymous one year ago Find the slope of a line parallel to 5x+2y=6 A- 2/5 B- -2/5 C- 5/2 D- -5/2

either a) solve for $$y$$ or b) memorize that the slope of $$ax+by=c$$ is $$-\frac{a}{b}$$

2. anonymous

in your case $$a=5,b=2$$

HI!!

you got this?

another way would be to rearrange it into point slope form so basically solve for y 5x+2y=6 -5x -5x 2y=6-5x divide both sides by two y=3-5/2x or y=-5/2x+3 and you have it in y=mx+b from and remember m=slope
