# How do you write an equation in slope-intercept form for the line with slope 5 and y-intercept-8?

Mar 10, 2018

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

#### Explanation:

Slope intercept form is $y = m x + c$ where the slope is $m$ and the $y$-intercept is $c$

With $m = 5 \mathmr{and} c = - 8$ we have:

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

No further work is necessary.

$y = 5 x - 8$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$\text{here "m=5" and } b = - 8$

$\Rightarrow y = 5 x - 8 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{in slope-intercept form}}$
