20y=17.5x
How can I find x and y

There is no unique solution for x and y
pick any x, say x=1
then 20y = 17.5(1)
y = 17.5/20 = .875
so one such solution is (1 , 0.875)
using the above method you can find as many solutions as you like.

Could someone help me with my next step? I am to find the slope and y intersept of 5x + 20y =60. I believe I need to rearrange this so that it matches the equation y= mx +b so, 20y = 5x +60. I would need to divide all sides by 20 leaving
