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
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XX}} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{m} x + \textcolor{red}{b}$
with $\textcolor{g r e e n}{m}$ being the slope
and $\textcolor{red}{b}$ 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)) :}#
