Given the equation of a line y = 2/5x - 2, the slope and y-intercept are respectively:

a. 2, -2/5
b. -2, 2/5
c. 2/5, 2
d. 2/5 , -2

Given the equation of a line y = 2/5x - 2, the slope and y-intercept are respectively:

In y=mx + b, b is the y intercept, and m is the slope.
Here, m appears to be 2/5, and b is -2.
Check my thinking

2/5,2

I apologize for the confusion in my previous response. You are correct. In the equation y = (2/5)x - 2, the slope "m" is 2/5 and the y-intercept "b" is -2. So, the correct answer is:

d. 2/5, -2
