5x-2y=-4

The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

y=mx+b

Subtract 5x from both sides of the equation.

-2y=-4-5x

Divide each term by -2 and simplify.

Divide each term in -2y=-4-5x by -2.

-2y-2=-4-2+-5x-2

Cancel the common factor of -2.

Cancel the common factor.

-2y-2=-4-2+-5x-2

Divide y by 1.

y=-4-2+-5x-2

y=-4-2+-5x-2

Simplify -4-2+-5x-2.

Simplify each term.

Divide -4 by -2.

y=2+-5x-2

Dividing two negative values results in a positive value.

y=2+5×2

y=2+5×2

Reorder 2 and 5×2.

y=5×2+2

y=5×2+2

y=5×2+2

Rewrite in slope-intercept form.

y=52x+2

y=52x+2
