Equation of the line slope-intercept form y=mx+b m=slope b=y-intercept Rearrage the given equation accroding to the slope-intercept form -3x+5y=-30 5y=3x-30 Divide by 5 both sides of the equation 5y/5=(3x-30)/5 y=3x/5-30/5 y=3/5(x)-6 Compare the above equation with Equation of the line slope-intercept form Slope=m=3/5 y-intercept = b = -6
