The slope intercept form of an equation is y=mx+b

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


subtract 1 from both sides


divide by 5


that is your x intercept.
