$y=1$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: A horizontal line has a slope of zero and has an equation of the form $y=k$ where $k$ the y-coordinate of all the points on the line. The line has a slope of zero therefore the line must be horizontal. The horizontal line passes through the point $(5, 1)$. The y-coordinate of the point $(5, 1)$ is $1$. Thus, the equation of the line is $y=1$.
