Answer:

See solution below:

Explanation:

This equation is in the slope intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: #y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

This equation is: #y = color(red)(-2/3)x - color(blue)(1)#

Therefore:

The slope is #color(red)(m = -2/3)#

The y-intercept is #color(blue)(b = -1)# or #(0, -1)#
