Answer:

#"slope "=-2/5," y-intercept "=3#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "2x+5y=15" into this form"#

#"subtract "2x" from both sides and divide terms by 5"#

#5y=-2x+15#

#y=-2/5x+3larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-2/5" and y-intercept "=3#
