Answer:

#f(x)=-9/5x-3#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"here "m=-9/5" and "b=-3larr(0,-3)#

#rArrf(x)=-9/5x-3larrcolor(red)"in slope-intercept form"#
