Which equation represents a line that contains the point (6,8) with a slope of 5?

(6,8), m = 5

y - y1 = m(x - x1) {point-slope form}

y - 8 = 5(x - 6) {substituted into point-slope form}

y - 8 = 5x - 30 {used distributive property}

y = 5x - 22 {added 8 to both sides}

**y = 5x - 22**{the equation in "slope-intercept form"}

or

**5x - y = 22**{the equation in "standard form"}
