# How do you find the slope given (10,8) and y-intercept which is 5?

Oct 10, 2016

Slope is $\frac{3}{10}$

#### Explanation:

Let the equation in slope-intercept form be $y = m x + c$

and as $y$-intercept is $5$,

the equation is $y = m x + 5$

As it passes through $\left(10 , 8\right)$

$8 = 10 m + 5$

and $10 m = 8 - 5 = 3$

and Slope $m$ is given by $m = \frac{3}{10}$
