Question:

What is a slope of line?

A
\(\frac{\mathrm{5} }{\mathrm{3}}\)

explanation

First, solve the equation \(5x − 3y = 8\) for y:

Subtract 5x from both sides.

5x − 3y - 5x = 8 - 5x

-3y =8 - 5x

\(y=\frac{\mathrm{5} }{\mathrm{3}}x-\frac{\mathrm{8} }{\mathrm{3}}\)

When the equation is in standard form (y = mx + b), the coefficient of x is the slope m.

So, a slope of line (m)= \(\frac{\mathrm{5} }{\mathrm{3}}\)
