find the two ordered pairs of this equation.
y=5/3x+8

then give the slope and y intercept.

I know the slope is rise over run and is the y intercept 8?

This is the answer I got but I am still really confused how do I get my two ordered pairs this makes no sense to me!
Your Y-Intercept is 8. From there on the graph you'd go to Positve 8 and from there you'd either go 5 up and 3 to the right or 5 down and 3 to the left....Either one would give you points on a straight line.

Y = mx + B

m= slope
x= x coordinate
y= y coordinate
b= y-intecept

thus, 5/3 is the slope and 8 is the y-intercept.

There are lots of ordered pairs on a line.
Two really easy ones are the x intercept and the y intercept.

At x axis intercept, y = 0
so
0 = (5/3) x + 8
x = -24/5
so that ordered pair is (-24/5 , 0)

At y axis intercept, x = 0
so
y = 0 + 8
so that ordered pair is (0,8)
