see explanation.

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and b. the y-intercept.

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

#rArr(0,5)color(red)" is a point on the graph"# To draw a line we require 2 points.

Choose any value of x to obtain a second point.

#x=3toy=3+5=8#

#rArr(3,8)color(red)" is a point on the graph"# Plot these 2 points and draw a straight line through them and you have the graph.
