    the formula says: for a line having slope m and a y-intercept of b , its equation in slope-intercept form is y = mx +b here m=-5 and b=-1 so y= -5x -1

    okay.. you have to apply the formula y= mx +b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept .. what you only need to do is replace the given values of the slope and y-intercept

    you replace m by (-5) and b by (-1) and you obtain y= -5x - 1
