straight line help!!!
hi everyone im new here and recently joined a int 2 maths class in scotland . Ive always had a self adversion to maths - always told myself i was not intelligent enough to do well in it . but it turns out i need a int2 maths to get into my post grad

im doing fairly well (surprizingly ) lol

but i am stuck at this question in my homework

write down the gradient and the value for c in the point (0, ) where the line cuts the axis

c. 2x-5y-35 = 0

(i am used to seeing the equation like this for example - y= 2x+5 ) which i can do

sorry if i make no sense!

Then solve 2x- 5y-35= 0 for y!
