#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "3x+5y=15" into this form"#

#"subtract "3x" from both sides"#

#5y=-3x+15#

#"divide all terms by 5"#

#rArry=-3/5x+3larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-3/5" and y-intercept "=3#
