Answer:

#y=1/3x+13/3# graph{1/3x+13/3 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

Explanation:

The slope-intercept form is #y=mx+b# therefore we have to isolate the #y#.

Begin by subtracting #x# from both sides to get #-3y=-x-13# (since #x# is positive on the left.)

Next, divide both sides by #-3# to get #y=1/3x+13/3.#

Graph by using #13/3# on the #y#- intercept and the using a rise of #1# and a run of #3# to find the next point.
