**Question:**explain

**Answers:**

y = mx + b

Change the equation into this form and you have the slope.

With your equation 8x - 6y = 5

....therefore 6y = 8x - 5

divide bs by 6 .... y = 1.33 x - 5/6

m (which is the slope of the line) is 1.25

slope equation.

y=mx+b

m=slope

b= y intercept.

got it?

Rewrite in slope intercept form: y = mx + b

-6y = -8x + 5

y = (-8/-6)x - 5/6

slope(m) = -8/-6 = 4/3

8/6

slope form is y=mx+b move over the 8x and divide by 6 to get y alone and then the m or slope is 8/6
