Answer:

Slope of the line is #-50.#

Explanation:

The standard slope-intercept form of equation of a straight line is represented by : #y=mx+c.# ....(i)

Here, #c# represents the y-intercept & #m# the slope of the line.

Now, given equation is #y=300-50x.# ....(ii)
#:.# Comparing equations (i) & (ii),
#y=(-50 )x+300.#

#:.m=-50, c=300.#
Therefore, slope of the line is #-50.# (answer).
