Answer

m=2

Work Step by Step

In slope-intercept form, the coefficient of x is the slope. However, the student forgot to rewrite the equation in the correct form, so the coefficient of x, in this case, was not the correct slope. 6x-3y=10 3y=6x-10 y=2x-$\frac{10}{3}$ When you change the equation to slope-intercept form, you can see that the slope is actually 2.
