Answer:

#m=5 and c =0#

Explanation:

An equation which has an #x# term, a #y# term and a number term (or at least two of these), represents a straight line graph.

The form #y=mx +c# is useful because the slope, #m#,
and the #y#-intercept, #c#, can be read off immediately,

Read #y= 5x# as meaning #y = 5/1x +0#

The slope is therefore #5/1# and the #y#-intercept is #0#
