To find the slope of the equation 5x + 2y = -20, you would first rearrange the equation into slope-intercept form, which is y = mx + b, where m is the slope:

2y = -5x - 20

Then, divide both sides by 2:

y = (-5/2)x - 10

Now, you can see that the coefficient of x, which is -5/2, represents the slope. Therefore, the slope of the equation 5x + 2y = -20 is -5/2.
