don't use dollar signs in your answer, this means you are copying this question from somewhere, i will answer your question, because why not??

Use the slope-intercept form y=mx+b to find the slope m.

m=−5/2

Hope this helps, whymenotsmart!

For the general form of straight line(ax + by + c = 0), the slope is equal to -a/b.

 

Now substitute a = 5, b = 2.
