A line that passes through the point (–1, 3) has a slope of 2. Another point on the line is (0, 5).
The equation of this line is y = 2x + 5;
y - 3 = 2(x + 1);
y = 2x + 2 + 3;
y = 2x + 5;
when x = 0;
y = 2*0 + 5;
y = 5

Solution:
y - y = m(x - x )
m = (y - y ) / (x - x )
= (5 - 2) / (0 - (-2))
= 3 / 2
y - 2 = (3/2)(x - (-2))
y - 2 = (3/2)(x + 2)
y - 2 = (3/2)x + 3
y = (3/2)x + 3 + 2
y = (3/2)x + 5

Comparing this equation with the given options, we can see that the correct answer is y = -3/2x + 5.
