find the slope of the line
5x  2y = 1
I know the standard form is y=mx+b. It has been a while since I have done these.

well put it in standard form.
add 2y to each side.
add 1 to each side.
divide each side by 2.
You have the standard form, m, and b.

Remember m is the slope and b is the yintercept
So first isolate y,
5x2y=1
2y=5x1
y=5/2x+1/2
Therefore, the slope is 5/2
