How do I solve a slope equation for Y?
Example:
2/3y =  1/5x

(2/3)y = (1/5)x
to get the slope, we first transform this equation into slopeintercept form,
y = mx + b
where m = slope and b = yintercept.
note that the numerical coefficient of y (number before the variable y) in slopeintercept form is 1, thus to change the given equation, we multiply both sides by 3/2:
(3/2)*(2/3)y = (3/2)*(1/5)x
y = (3/10)x
therefore,
slope = 3/10
hope this helps~ :)
