Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An xintercept has coordinates (5,0) because to "get" on the xaxis, your ycoordinate has to be 0. By similar reasoning, the yintercept has coordinates (0,6). The slope of the line is (0  6) / (5  0) = 6/5. Use either point for (x1, y1). Using the yintercept: y  6 = (6/5) ( x  0) y  6 = (6/5) x + 0 y = (6/5) x + 6
