Answer:

#y = 5x-8# is the equation of the line.

Explanation:

Slope intercept form is #y = mx+c# where the slope is #m# and the #y#-intercept is #c#

With #m=5 and c=-8# we have:

#y = 5x-8# as the equation of the line.

No further work is necessary.

Answer:

#y=5x-8#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#
