Nov 27, 2017

$\frac{3}{5}$

#### Explanation:

The equation is in the form of: $y = m x + b$
where:
m is the slope

Therefore, the slope is $\frac{3}{5}$

#### 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.

$y = \textcolor{red}{\frac{3}{5}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{5}$

Therefore, the slope is: $\textcolor{red}{m = \frac{3}{5}}$
