# What is the slope of 62=-35y+15x?

Apr 21, 2018

$\frac{3}{7}$

#### Explanation:

$62 = - 35 y + 15 x$

Rearrange the equation

$35 y = 15 x - 62$

Didvide both sides by $35$

$\frac{\cancel{35} y}{\cancel{35}} = \frac{15 x}{35} - \frac{62}{35}$

$y = \frac{3 x}{7} - \frac{62}{35}$

It’s in the form of $y = m x + c$

Where

• $m = \text{slope} = \frac{3}{7}$
• $c = \text{y-intercept} = - \frac{62}{35}$
