# How do you write an equation of a line with slope 5 y intercept 8?

Sep 4, 2017

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We can use the slope-intercept formula to write the equation for this line. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

Substituting for the slope and the $y$-intercept gives:

$y = \textcolor{red}{5} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{8}$
