 Question 93697: what is the slope and y intercept of 5x-4y=20Answer by praseenakos@yahoo.com(507)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Question: what is the slope and y intercept of 5x-4y=20 Answer: First of all rewrite the given equation into the standard slope intercept form of a line, that is y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the slope of the equation. 5x - 4y = 20 Subtract 5x from both sides. ==> 5x - 4y - 5x = 20 - 5x ==> -4y = 20 - 5x Divide both sides by -4 ==> ==> Which can be written as, , which is of standard form So, slope of the given equation is, and y intercept is Hope you found the explanation useful.
