Chapter 3 - Section 3.4 - The Slope of a Line - Exercise Set: 29

Answer

The slope of this line is m=5 and the y-intercept is (0,-2)

Work Step by Step

$f(x)=5x-2$ is written in the slope-intercept form $y=mx+b$, where m is the slope, and the point (0,b) is the y-intercept. $m=5$ and $b=-2$ Therefore, the slope of this line is m=5 and the y-intercept is (0,-2).
