A point (in the context of this problem) has two coordinates, so the answer should be in the form of (x, y).

A point (in the context of this problem) has two coordinates, so the answer should be in the form of (x, y).
So I'd leave my final answer as (0.693,2.772)?

You have a mistake right off the bat. 2x + y = 5 is not equivalent to y = 2x + 5.

Instead of solving for the intercepts of the line and doing the slope formula, just rewrite the equation of the line in the form ##y=mx+b## then the coefficient ##m## of ##x## is the slope.
