How do you write an equation of a line with slope -5/6 and y-intercept 5?

1 Answer

Answer:

The line is represented by the equation
#y = -5/6x +5#

Explanation:

The general form of the equation for a line is
#y = mx + c# (equation 1)

where #m# is the slope or gradient of the line and #c# is a constant
and represents the y-intercept

therefore for this equation
#y = mx + 5# (equation 2)

The slope of line is #-5/6# so substituting in these values
#6 = x*-5/6 + 5# (equation 3)

or #y = -5/6x +5 #
