#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in the form y = mx + c , where m represents the gradient (slope ) and c , the y-intercept , is useful in that the values of m and c , can be extracted ' easily'.

the equation

# y = 1/5 x + 5 " is in this form " #

#rArr " slope " = 1/5 " and y-intercept " = 5 # Here is the graph.
