##### 2 Answers

Slope = -1

y-intercept = -5

#### Explanation:

If you rearrange it to standard form

See solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, the equation needs to be rewritten into Slope-Intercept Form, which is

To find the slope and y-intercept of any equation in Slope-Intercept Form, your "m" value will represent slope, and your "b" value will represent the y-intercept.

In this equation:

Since there is a value for "b", or y-intercept, it can be represented with 5.
