find the yintercept of a line that passes through (2,1) and has a slope of 5.
i forgot what equation i have to use to find this out. can someone give me which equation i have to use?
or all the equations that deal with slopes please

A line of slope m passing through the point P1(x1,y1) has the equation:
(yy1)=m(xx1)
Post your answer if you need a check.
But you can check your own answer by substituting (x1,y1) in the equation to see if the two sides balance. 
Oh yes, the yintercept can be found by setting x=0 in the resulting equation of the line.
If you simplify the equation of the line using x=0, you should get:
yintercept = y1mx1
