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?
