What is the slope of the line described by the equation 1
_____________________________-x+-y=5___
________________________________3______ i hope someone understands this problem

• Mathematics -

ugh sorry it looks rediculous. let me try again -x+1/3y=5

• Mathematics -

solve for y. Slope is the coefficent of the x term when the equation is in the form

y=mx+b
