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 changeofy divided by the changeofx, also known as riseoverrun. 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 yintercept, 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 yaxis at the point that the yaxis intersects the xaxis.
