Hi again Ge Manni;
y=[(3/5)x]/3
Let's first consider...
(3/5)/3
This is one third of 3/5...
(3/5)(1/3)=3/15=1/5
y=(1/5)x
The slope of this line is 1/5.  Slope is defined as the change-of-y divided by the change-of-x, also known as rise-over-run.  This line rises one unit as it moves to the right five units.
The equation is in the format of...
y=mx+b
m is the slope.
b is the y-intercept, the value of y when x=0.
y=(1/5)x+0
One coordinate of this line is (0,0).  This line passes through the y-axis at the point that the y-axis intersects the x-axis.
