Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the point slope formula is (xx_1)m=yy_1 where in this case a line on this point is (x_1,y_1)=(5,3) and m=2/5 since that is the slope of this line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we want to put this in y=mx+b form which is the slope intercept form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the above equation has y by itself we need to solve for y by subtracting 3 on both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slopeintercept equation is: y = mx + b You know the slope, and they give you (x=5,y=3); so lets plug and play... 3 = (2/5)(5) +b ; solve for "b". 3 = 2 + b 1 = b throw away your (5,3) and use the equation as it: y = (2/5)x  1
