Answer:

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 = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

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

#y = color(red)(5)x + color(blue)(8)#
