The slope of a line is -1/5, and the y-intercept is 5. What is the equation of the line written in general form? x - 5y - 25 = 0 x - 5y - 5 = 0 x + 5y - 25 = 0

    If you solve for y, the equation should come out like this \(y=-\dfrac{1}{5}x+5\)

    no you don't need a common denominator to multiply or divide fractions that's only for addition or subtraction

    Which would make: y=-1/5x+5 y(5) = -1/5(5)x+5(5) 5 = -x+25 Yes?
