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
b= y intercept.
Rewrite in slope intercept form: y = mx + b
-6y = -8x + 5
y = (-8/-6)x - 5/6
slope(m) = -8/-6 = 4/3
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
