Answer:

It depends upon which variable you want to be the independent variable (see below).

Explanation:

Typically the slope intercept form for a linear equation with dependent variable #y# and independent variable #x# is
#color(white)("XX")y=color(green)mx+color(red)b#
with #color(green)m# being the slope
and #color(red)b# being the y-intercept.

Given #s+g=10#
we could write this as:
#{: (s=color(green)(""(-1))g+color(red)(10),color(white)("xx")orcolor(white)("xx"),g=color(green)(""(-1))s+color(red)(10)), ("with",,), (" slope "= (color(green)(-1)),," slope " = (color(green)(-1))), (" "s"-intercept "=color(red)(10),," "g"-intercept "=color(red)(10)) :}#
