To find the slope and y-intercept, we first need to put this equation in Slope Intercept Form (SIF). SIF is y=mx+b where "m" is the slope and "b" is the y-intercept. To put the equation in slope intercept form, we need to isolate y and simplify the other terms. 5x+4y=2 -5x -5x 4y=-5x+2 /4 /4 y=5/4x+2/4 y=5/4x+1/2 Using the math above, we can see that the slope is 5/4 and the y-intercept is 1/2.
