Answer:Nope

Step-by-step explanation:we can graph y = 5x as y = 5 units up and one unit to the right

but for right now let me be specific on what i mean

Specifically:y = 5x is a Slope-Intercept equation, the original Slope-Intercept equation would be y = mx + b but in this case, we don’t have b so we’re focusing now on y = 5x, but what are we suppose to do with 5x??? well 5x represents the slope of the line so to graph a slope, use rise over run = rise/run. so only 5 is being used so 5 = rise/run = 5/1.

Answer:(1, 3) doesn’t satisfy the equationAnswer:No, it does not satisfy the equation

Step-by-step explanation:Hi there!

We are given the equation y=5x and we want to know if the point (1,3) will satisfy the equation

If we substitute the values of a point into the equation, and the result is a true statement (ex. 2=2), then the point satisfies the equation

If we substitute the values of a point into the equation and the result is a false statement (ex. 0=7), then the point doesn’t satisfy the equation

The reason for this is because when we plug the value of a point into an equation, we’re seeing if the equation will pass through that given point.

So let’s substitute 1 as x and 3 as y into y=5x

3=5(1)

multiply

3=5

The result is a false statement; therefore, the point doesn’t satisfy y=5x

Hope this helps!
