Consider the line with equation
5x – 2y = 10.


(a) Find the y-intercept 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 -

    Put it in slope intercept form.

    y=5/2 x -5

    check my thinking.

  • Algebra -

    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?
