1. I have done several of these already. Please observe the method I have used and make an attempt yourself. We will be glad to critique your work.

You have asked two questions here.

In the first case, the equation you are after will have the form
y = -(3/5)x + b
Use the fact that y = 5 when x = 0 to get b.
