# How do you write -5x+12=20 in slope intercept form?

Nov 28, 2014

$- 5 x + 12 = 20$

by subtracting $12$,

$\implies - 5 x = 8$

by dividing by $- 5$,

$\implies x = - \frac{8}{5}$,

which is a vertical line, whose slope is undefined, so it cannot be written in Slope-Intercept Form.

I hope that this was helpful.
