    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!
