# What is the slope of 2=-120y+12x?

Dec 8, 2015

Slope: $\frac{1}{10}$

#### Explanation:

The slope of the general standard linear equation:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} A x + B y = C$
is $\left(- \frac{A}{B}\right)$

$2 = - 120 y + 12 x$
is equivalent to
$12 x - 120 y = 2$

So its slope is $\left(- \frac{12}{- 120}\right) = \frac{1}{10}$
