# Find the Slope 10y+38x=16.5 10y+38x=16.5
Rewrite in slope-intercept form.
The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Subtract 38x from both sides of the equation.
10y=16.5-38x
Divide each term by 10 and simplify.
Divide each term in 10y=16.5-38x by 10.
10y10=16.510+-38×10
Cancel the common factor of 10.
Cancel the common factor.
10y10=16.510+-38×10
Divide y by 1.
y=16.510+-38×10
y=16.510+-38×10
Simplify 16.510+-38×10.
Simplify each term.
Divide 16.5 by 10.
y=1.65+-38×10
Cancel the common factor of -38 and 10.
Factor 2 out of -38x.
y=1.65+2(-19x)10
Cancel the common factors.
Factor 2 out of 10.
y=1.65+2(-19x)2(5)
Cancel the common factor.
y=1.65+2(-19x)2⋅5
Rewrite the expression.
y=1.65+-19×5
y=1.65+-19×5
y=1.65+-19×5
Move the negative in front of the fraction.
y=1.65-19×5
y=1.65-19×5
Reorder 1.65 and -19×5.
y=-19×5+1.65
y=-19×5+1.65
y=-19×5+1.65
Rewrite in slope-intercept form.
y=-195x+1.65
y=-195x+1.65
Using the slope-intercept form, the slope is -195.
m=-195
