Consider the standart form of equation:
\(Ax+By=C\)
Isolate the variable y term on one side of the equation:
\(By=-Ax+c\)
Divide both sides of the equation with B to write the equation in slope intercept form:
\(\displaystyle{y}=-\frac{{A}}{{B}}{x}+\frac{{C}}{{B}}\)
This implies that the slope of an equation written in standart form is \(\displaystyle-\frac{{A}}{{B}}\), therefore the slope of \(5x+2y=10\) is \(\displaystyle-\frac{{5}}{{2}}\)
