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.
