Work Step by Step
The line passes through the point (0, -2), so we know that the y intercept is -2 (because this is where x=0). We will write this in the form y=mx+b. The slope is 5, so we will plug 5 in for m. The y intercept is -2, so we will plug -2 in for b. Thus, we obtain the function: $y=5x-2$.
