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!
