# How do you find the slope of the line x + 5y = 10?

Jul 18, 2015

slope$= \frac{1}{5}$

#### Explanation:

$x + 5 y = 10$

$\implies 5 y = - x + 10$

$\implies y = \frac{x}{5} + 2$$\text{ } \textcolor{red}{\left(1\right)}$

We know that,

$y = m x + c$$\text{ } \textcolor{red}{\left(2\right)}$

compare$\text{ } \textcolor{red}{\left(1\right)}$&$\text{ } \textcolor{red}{\left(2\right)}$

$m = \frac{1}{5}$
