# Graph y=6/5x+8 y=65x+8
Use the slope-intercept form to find the slope and y-intercept.
The slope-intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.
y=mx+b
Find the values of m and b using the form y=mx+b.
m=65
b=8
The slope of the line is the value of m, and the y-intercept is the value of b.
Slope: 65
y-intercept: 8
Slope: 65
y-intercept: 8
Any line can be graphed using two points. Select two x values, and plug them into the equation to find the corresponding y values.
Choose 0 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 0 in the expression.
f(0)=6(0)5+8
Simplify the result.
Multiply 6 by 0.
f(0)=05+8
Divide 0 by 5.
f(0)=0+8
f(0)=8
8
8
The y value at x=0 is 8.
y=8
y=8
Choose 1 to substitute in for x to find the ordered pair.
Replace the variable x with 1 in the expression.
f(1)=6(1)5+8
Simplify the result.
Multiply 6 by 1.
f(1)=65+8
To write 8 as a fraction with a common denominator, multiply by 55.
f(1)=65+8⋅55
Combine 8 and 55.
f(1)=65+8⋅55
Combine the numerators over the common denominator.
f(1)=6+8⋅55
Simplify the numerator.
Multiply 8 by 5.
f(1)=6+405
f(1)=465
f(1)=465
465
465
The y value at x=1 is 465.
y=465
y=465
Create a table of the x and y values.
