Using calculus, find the equation of the line through the point (3, 5) that cuts off the least area from the first quadrant. Show all steps and define variables when appropriate. Use exact numbers when possible; if necessary, round any decimal numbers to four digits behind the decimal.

Let the slope of the line be m. Then the equation to the line is y - 5 = m(x - 3) ...
