Answer:

The slope is #5# and the y-intercept is #-3#

Explanation:

The slope intercept for of a linear equation is:

#y = color(red)(m)x color(green)(+) color(green)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(green)(b)# is the #y# intercept.

Therefore for this problem: #y = color(red)(5)x color(green)(-) color(green)(3)#:

#color(red)(m = 5)# so the slope is #5#

and

#color(green)(b = -3# so the y-intercept is #-3#
