$m=2; b=-5 $
Work Step by Step
This equation is in the form y=mx+b. In order to figure out what the slope is, we must figure out what x is being multiplied by. x is being multiplied by 2, so we know that m, the slope, is 2. We now must figure out what is being added to x. -5 is being added to x, so we know that b, the y intercept, is -5.
