Consider the line with equation
5x – 2y = 10.
(a) Find the yintercept for the given line.
(b)Find the slope for a line parallel to the given line.
(c) Find the slope for a line perpendicular to the given line.

Algebra 
bobpursley,
Put it in slope intercept form.
y=5/2 x 5
check my thinking. 
Algebra 
Carmin,
So the y will = 5 but what about the slopes of a parallel and perpendicular to the given line? I got
m= 2.5 for the parallel one, is this correct?
