#### Explanation:

We can write this equation using the slope-intercept form, shown below.

Here, m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

First, we can input the value of the slope given in the problem.

To determine the b value, we must input the given x and y values.

We then simply add 10 to both sides.

Next, we can plug this b value into the original equation. This is the equation of the line.
