# What is the slope of the line whose equation is 5y + 6x - 2 = 0?

**Solution:**

The slope-intercept form of a straight line is used to find the equation of a line.

For the slope-intercept formula, we have to know the slope of the line and the intercept cut by the line with the y-axis.

Let us consider a straight line of slope 'm' and y-intercept 'b'.

The slope intercept form equation for a straight line with a slope, 'm', and 'b' as the y-intercept can be given as: y = mx + b

Given: Equation is 5y + 6x - 2 = 0

Let us use the slope intercept form

i.e y = mx + b where m is the slope.

5y = -6x + 2

Divide both sides by 5

y = -6x/5 + 2/5

By comparing it with the standard form, we get

m = -6/5

Therefore, the slope of the line is -6/5.

## What is the slope of the line whose equation is 5y + 6x - 2 = 0?

**Summary:**

The slope of the line whose equation is 5y + 6x - 2 = 0 is -6/5.
