5x - 3y = 1

5x = 3y + 1

Subtract 1 from each side:

5x - 1 = 3y

Divide each side by 3 :

5/3 x - 1/3 = y

The slope is 5/3 .

The y-intercept is -1/3 .

$5x-3y=1 \\ \\ the \ slope \ intercept \ form \ is : \\ \\ y= mx +b \\ \\-3y=-5x+1 \ \ /:(-3)\\ \\y= \frac{5}{3}x-\frac{1}{3}\\ \\Answer: \ the \ slope : \ m=\frac{5}{3}$
