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

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

solve for y. Slope is the coefficent of the x term when the equation is in the form
y=mx+b
