Write down the gradient of the straight line.Answer by nerdybill(6948)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A straight line has equation y=5x-3. Write down the gradient of the straight line. . "Gradient" is the same as the slope. The given equation: y=5x-3 is already in "slope-intercept" form of y=mx+b where m is the slope . By inspection then, we see that the gradient is 5
