4x + 5y = 15
y= -4/5x+3
(4,5)
eqn of line D = y=-4/5x+c
solve with (4,5) for C
we get C = 8.2
IMO D

anything in specific you in doubt then please highlight

we are given
4x + 5y = 15
eqn of line ; y=mx+c
y= y coordinate ; x= x coordinate and c= y intercept

so we can re write 4x + 5y = 15 as
y= -4/5x+3
(4,5) given
slope of line will be same ; m = -4/5 ,we need to find C for
eqn of line D = y=-4/5x+c
solve with (4,5) for C
we get C = 8.2
IMO D

The (4,5) given is the intersection so why do we take it for solving the equation?
