Work Step by Step

RECALL: The slope-intercept form of a line's equation is $y=mx+b$ where $m$ = slope and $b$ = y-intercept. The given equation can be written as: $2y=3x+5 \\\frac{2y}{2}= \frac{3x+5}{2} \\y = \frac{3}{2}x + \frac{5}{2}$ The equation above is in slope-intercept form with slope $m=\frac{3}{2}$. Thus, the given statement is false.
