What is the slope of a line parallel to the line with equation 2x  5y = 9?
Slopeintercept form is y = mx + b
m is the slope b is the yintercept 2x  5y = 9 5y = 2x + 9 {subtracted 2x from each side} y = (2/5)x  (9/5) {divided each side by 5} slope is 2/5 Parallel lines have equal slopes. The slope of the parallel line would also be 2/5 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
