See a solution process below:

Explanation:

This equation is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

$y = \textcolor{red}{2} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{5}$

Therefore the slope is: $\textcolor{red}{m = 2}$
