We need to plug 5 in place of x into the equation of the line and find the y-value.
y = (2/3)x + 7
y = (2/3)5 + 7
y = 10/3 + 7
y = 10/3 + 21/3
y = 31/3
y = 10 1/3
The point is (5, 10 1/3) OR (5, 31/3).

(x,y) = (5, ?), so x = 5. Substitute 5 into the function for x to find the value of y when x = 5. y = 2/3 (5) + 7 = (2 x 5) / 3 + 7 = 10/3 + 7 = 10/3 + 21/3 = 31/3, which equals 10 1/3 or 10.3 repeating.
