Dear Tyrun,

You haven't really asked a question. Am I supposed to find a line parallel to y=5x-4 that includes the point (5, -3)? Such a line would also have a slope of 5, but the y intercept would be different.

y = mx + b = 5x +b

Substituting the values for x and y gives

(-3) = (5)(5) + b = 25 + b

b = (-3) - 25 = -28

so the equation of the line is

**y = 5x - 28**

I don't know if I've answered your question or not, but give me an A for effort!
