Graph the line.
2) Through (0, 6), m = 15 1 over 5
Hello,
I assume that the slope of the line is $\displaystyle m=\frac15$
Use the point-slope-formula. If you know the coordinates of point $\displaystyle P(x_1, y_1)$ and the slope m then the equation of the line is:
$\displaystyle y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ . Plug in the values you already know and solve for y. $\displaystyle (y = \frac15 \cdot x+6)$
Second attempt: The general form of an equation of a straight line is:
$\displaystyle y=mx+b$ . The coordinates of the given point must satisfy this equation. You know m already. Plug in these values and solve for b:
$\displaystyle 6=\frac15 \cdot 0 +b~\iff~b = 6$
