Please look in your text book for this problem Statement

slope-intercept form line equation is y = mx + b, where m is slope and b is y-intercept

The line equation in slope-intercept form is , where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

First find the slope of the line.

                       (Substitute )

                          (Product of two same signs is positive)

                          (Add: )

                                (Subtract: )

                               (Divide: )

Next find the y-intercept value by replacing m with , y with and x with 5 in

the equation .

                               (Multiply: )

      (Add to each side)

             (Apply commutative property of addition: )

                        (Apply additive inverse proeprty: )

                              (Apply additive identity property: )

                                    (Subtract: )

Replace m with and b with in the slope-intercept form line equation .

The slope-intercept form line equation is  .
