Answer:

Slope-intercept form is #y = mx+c#

#y = -2x+1 1/6" or " y = -2x+7/6#

Explanation:

#y - 2/3 = -2(x-1/4)#

Follow the usual process of simplifying - start by getting rid of the brackets.

#y - 2/3 = -2x+1/2#

Slope-intercept form is #" "y = mx +c" "# so isolate the #y#-term

#y= -2x+1/2+2/3" "larr# add the fractions

#y = -2x +(3+4)/6#

#y = -2x+7/6" or " y = -2x+1 1/6#
