A line has a slope of 6/7 and a yintercept of 5. Which of the following is the equation of the line?
7x  6y = 35
7x  6y = 5
6x  7y = 35
6x  7y = 35
I'm honestly not sure with this, I'm thinking that it's 7x  6y = 5.. Not sure though.
Also, could you explain how you found your answer? This would help so much..

y = m x + b
This is called the slopeintercept form because "m" is the slope and "b" gives the yintercept.
In this case :
b = 6 / 7
m =  5
y = m x + b
y = ( 6 / 7 ) x + (  5 )
y = ( 6 / 7 ) x  5 Multiply both sides by 7
7 y = 6 x  35 Subtract 6 x to both sides
7 y  6 x = 6 x  35  6x
7 y  6 x =  35 Multiply both sides by  1
 7 y + 6 x = 35
6 x  7 y = 35 
Correction:
In this case :
m = 6 / 7
b =  5
