# How do you write the equation of a line with Slope=7/5 y-intercept =-5?

Nov 16, 2016

You would use the slope-intercept form.

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form for a linear equation is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope, and $b$ is the y-intercept.

From the given information, the equation would be $y = \frac{7}{5} x - 5$.

The y-intercept is the value of $y$ when $x = 0$, which is the point $\left(0 , - 5\right)$, which can be seen on the graph.
