5x-7y=15

The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

y=mx+b

Subtract 5x from both sides of the equation.

-7y=15-5x

Divide each term by -7 and simplify.

Divide each term in -7y=15-5x by -7.

-7y-7=15-7+-5x-7

Cancel the common factor of -7.

Cancel the common factor.

-7y-7=15-7+-5x-7

Divide y by 1.

y=15-7+-5x-7

y=15-7+-5x-7

Simplify 15-7+-5x-7.

Simplify each term.

Move the negative in front of the fraction.

y=-157+-5x-7

Dividing two negative values results in a positive value.

y=-157+5×7

y=-157+5×7

Reorder -157 and 5×7.

y=5×7-157

y=5×7-157

y=5×7-157

Rewrite in slope-intercept form.

y=57x-157

y=57x-157

Using the slope-intercept form, the slope is 57.

m=57
