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:
y=ABx+CB
This implies that the slope of an equation written in standart form is AB, therefore the slope of 5x+2y=10 is 52
