    Y=mx+b M=slope... B is also known as the Y-intercept

    y=mx+b You want the number in front of the x to be -5 and the b part to be the y-intercept (which was also provided) Can you write it based on that?

    Slope is always next to the variable and in the case your slope is -5 so you can eliminate the last one

    And you have the point (0,2) the two is in the y place so that is your y-intercept and as said before b= y-intercept
