# How do you write an equation in slope intercept form given m=-2/3, b=5?

Jan 15, 2017

See entire explanation below:

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

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

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and color(blue)(b is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the slope and y-intercept given in the problem provides the result:

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{2}{3}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{5}$
