The general equation for a straight line is y = mx+c
where m is the slope and c is the intercept. So, the key is to convert every equation to the same form to determine the slope and intercept.

 y+3 = 5(x-2) => y+3 = 5x-10 => y=5x-13

So, by comparision, we can easily determine m =5 and y-intercept is 13
