Answer:

Slope is # -3/5# and y-intercept is #3#

Explanation:

# 3x+5y=15 # [Make y as subject]

#:. 5y=-3x+ 15 or y = -3/5x+3#

Comparing with slope intercept form of straight line #y=mx+c#

we find here slope #m= -3/5# and y-intercept as #c=3#

Therefore , slope is # -3/5# and y-intercept is #3#
