Thanks :)Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, Using the standard slope-intercept form for an equation of a line y = mx + b where m is the slope and b the y-intercept. y = -3/5 x + 1 is in this format with m = -(3/5) P(0,1) the y-intercept m = -(3/5) tells us y decreases by 3 as x increases 5 or visa versa Pt(0,1) the y-intercept tells us following are on the line with m = -(5/2): Pt (5,-2)or as y decreases by 3, x inreases by 5 Pt (-5, 4) as y increases by 3, x decreases by 5 ```
