Find the slope of a line 7x –
8y + 10 =0.

__Solution__
7x – 8y + 10 =0

We strive to re-write it in
the form y=mx+c.

– 8y + 10 = -7x [shifting 7x to the right side.]

– 8y = -7x – 10 [shifting
10 to the right side.]

__– 8y__=

__-7x__–

__10__[dividing by -8 all over]

-8 -8
-8

y =

^{7x}/8 +^{5}/4 which is like y=mx + c**Hence Slope is**

^{7}/8
