the slope is $2.9$ and the $y$-intercept is $75$

Work Step by Step

Using $y=mx+b$ or the Slope-Intercept Form of linear equations where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$-intercept, the given equation, $ 29x-10y=-750 ,$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} -10y=-29x-750 \\ y=\dfrac{-29x}{-10}-\dfrac{750}{-10} \\ y=2.9x+75 .\end{array} Hence, $\text{ the slope is $2.9$ and the $y$-intercept is $75$ }.$
