For the intercept method,you have to have x and y intercept and im trying to figure the answer out but i can't and im trying to solve the y and the x intercept for my question

In this form b is the x intercept and m is the slope

for your equation you have y=5x+1

so you know the slope is 5/1

and the y intercept is 1

to get the x intercept you can set y to 0 and solve for x

0=5x+1

subtract 1 from both sides

-1=5x

divide by 5

x=-1/5

that is your x intercept.
