WHAT IS THE SLOPE AND Y-INTERCEPT OF THE LINE

7-1/5y-3x =

  • MATH -

    If you mean:
    7 - (1/5) y - 3x = 0
    when y = 0, x = 7/3, that is the x axis intercept
    when x = 0, y = 35, that is the y axis intercept
    to find the slope move the y to the right by adding y/5 to both sides
    y/5 = 7 - 3 x multiply both sides by 5
    y = -15 x + 35
    that is now in the form
    y = m x + b
    where m, the slope, is -15
