Type N if the slope is undeﬁned.) Question is complete. The ﬁrst step in ﬁnding the slope is to write the equation in the form y=rnx+ b. In other words,
solve for y. 5x — y = 13
Subtract 5X from both sides ofthe equation.
, y= , 5X+ 13
Divide both sides of the equation by- 1.
y = 5x - 13
“o ﬁnd the slope of an equation in the form ofy=rnx+ b, ﬁnd the coefﬁcient of the X-term, rn. rn=5 ”herefore, the slope of the line y: 5x- 13, or 5x- y= 13, is 5 Question is complete. All Rants shaming
