Answer:

#y = 2x + 4#

Explanation:

Slope intercept form is represented as:

y = mx + c,
where, m is slope and c is y-intercept.

Our objective is to convert the given equation into this form, with only y on the LHS with a coefficient +1. This can be done as follows:

Given,

#10x - 5y = -20 #
# "or," -5y = -10x - 20 #
# "or," cancel(-5)y = cancel(-5) (2x + 4)#
#"Therefore, " y = 2x + 4 #
