How do you find the slope and y-intercept out of this equaiton?

5x + 3y = 9

5x + 3y = 9

Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b

m is the slope {number in front of x}

b is the y-intercept {number without a variable}

5x + 3y = 9

3y = -5x + 9 {subtracted 5x from both sides}

y = (-5/3)x + 3 {divided both sides by 3}

**slope = - 5/3**

y-intercept = 3

y-intercept = 3
