**Reiny**, Friday, March 14, 2008 at 3:20pmsince you know the slope is 1/5 you know the new equation must be

y = (1/5)x + b, but you also know that (3,5) lies on it, so...

5 = (1/5)(3) + b , multiply by 5

25 = 3 + 5b

22 = 5b

b = 22/5

so the equation in the form asked for is

y = (1/5)x + 22/5
