    y = log x If y = 10, then what is x?

    don't quite understand your statement of equation of y in terms of x

    we are describing y in terms of x another way to explain would be what do you have to do to x so it equals y

    we want y by itself so we divide by 5 BOTH SIDES.

    slope is -8/5 opposite reciprocal is 5/8 point slope form is y - y1=m(x-x1) from question (y-5)=5/8(x-0)

    y-5=5/8(x-0) that is your equation any question
