The slope of the line through points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) is given by : \(\huge m=\frac{y_1y_2}{x_1x_2}\) now,just put the values and find m.

What is the equation of a line that has a slope of 5 and passes through the point (0, 2)?

the equation of line in slope point form is yy1 = m (xx1) m= slope = 5 here (x1,y1) = point = (0,2) here now just put values.
