# How do you find the slope of x-y=5?

$1$

#### Explanation:

Given: $x - y = 5$

Rearrange.

$\implies - y = 5 - x$

$y = - \left(5 - x\right)$

$y = x - 5$

$\implies y = 1 x - 5$

An equation in the form of $y = m x + b$ has a slope of $m$.

So here, we got $m = 1$, and therefore the slope of the line is $1$.
