# How do you find the linear function, mx b, whose graph has the given Slope is -15/11 and y-intercept is (0,-6)?

$y = - \frac{15}{11} x - 6$

#### Explanation:

We can find this equation using the slope-intercept formula.

This formula states:

$\textcolor{red}{y = m x + b}$

Where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y$ intercept or $\left(0 , b\right)$

In this problem we are provided the slope m ($- \frac{15}{11}$) and the y-intercept (0, -6). Substituting this information gives the equation:

$y = - \frac{15}{11} x - 6$
