# How do you find the slope of the line -3y-5y=6?

Aug 5, 2015

I found: slope$= - \frac{3}{5}$

#### Explanation:

You can write it in slope-intercept form:
$y = m x + c$
where the numerical coefficient $m$ will be the slope:

rearranging:

$- 3 y - 6 = 5 y$

Isolating $y$ you get:

$y = - \frac{3}{5} x - \frac{6}{5}$

so the slope is $- \frac{3}{5}$
