Answer:

#y=(-13/5)x+12/5# is in slope-intercept form, where #(-13/5)# is slope and #12/5# is its intercept on #y# axis.

Explanation:

A linear equation in slope-intercept form is #y=mx+c#. Hence, to convert the equation #13x+5y=12# into slope-intercept form, one has to find the value of #y#.

As #13x+5y=12#, #5y=-13x+12# or

#y=(-13/5)x+12/5#

This is now in slope-intercept form, where #(-13/5)# is slope and #12/5# is its intercept on #y# axis.
