if the distance is 5 you plug in 5 where Y goes then since its 5 miles for 1 second you plug in 1 where x goes

Since you used nicely tidied units, and its a distance time graph it means that the slope is the speed.

and you get \[\frac{ 5 }{ 1 }\]

The slope is 5. It is going 5 mps so it has a constant rate of 5 so we have d = 5x
