5x - 2y = -1

I know the standard form is y=mx+b. It has been a while since I have done these.

**bobpursley**, Sunday, July 4, 2010 at 6:14pmwell 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.

**Alice**, Sunday, July 4, 2010 at 6:17pmRemember m is the slope and b is the y-intercept

So first isolate y,

5x-2y=-1

-2y=-5x-1

y=5/2x+1/2

Therefore, the slope is 5/2
