For x intercept , y = 0

Substitute y = 0 in the equation, we get 2x=10; x=5

The point is (5,0)


For y intercept , x = 0

Substitute x = 0 in the equation, we get -5y=10; y = -2

The point is (0, -2)

To find the slope, the equation should be converted to y = mx +c, where m is the slope

Hence 2x- 5y =10 can be written as 2x-10 = 5y

   

y = 2x/5  -2

so slope is 2/5

Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
