Can someone help me work through this problem? Write the equation in slope-intercept form. What are the slope and y intercept? -2x-11y=5

    Do you know how to solve for y? or should I explain it?

    Wouldn't I just have to get y on its own side? @ckallerid

    So I got it to -11y=5+2x by adding 2x to each side @ckallerid

    Now divide each side by -11?

    well it would be in fraction form which is \[y=\frac{ 5 }{ -11 } + \frac{ 2 }{ -11 }x\]

    I am pretty sure the answer is D, correct? because slope would be m and the y intercept would be b in y=mx+b
