## Answers ( )

Answer:y = – 3x – 10

Step-by-step explanation:The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept )

Here m = – 3, thus

y = – 3x + c ← is the partial equation

To find c substitute (- 5, 5) into the partial equation

5 = 15 + c ⇒ c = 5 – 15 = – 10

y = – 3x – 10 ← equation of line

Answer:-10 = b

Step-by-step explanation:y=mx+b substitute numbers for the variables

5= -3(-5)+b

5=15+b

-15 -15

-10= b
