#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form "# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#y=-3x-5" is in this form"#

#rArr"slope "=m=-3" and y-intercept "=b=-5#

The slope is

#### Explanation:
