We conclude that the equation of the line is:

Step-by-step explanation:

The slope-intercept form of the line equation

where

• m is the slope
• b is the y-intercept

Given the data table

x      -3 -5 -7 -9 -11

y      -16 -26 -36 -46 -56

From the table taking two points

• (-3, -16)
• (-5, -26)

Determining the slope between (-3, -16) and (-5, -26)

Thus, the slope of the line is:  m = 5

substituting m = 5 and (-3, -16) in the slope-intercept form of the line equation  to determine the y-intercept b

-16 = 5(-3) + b

-16 = -15 + b

b = -16+15

b = 1

Thus, the y-intercept b = 1

now substituting m = 5 and b = 1 in the slope-intercept form of the line equation

Therefore, we conclude that the equation of the line is:
