Answer:

See the entire solution process below:

Explanation:

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.

Substituting the values from the problem gives:

#y = color(red)(2/3)x + color(blue)(-5)#

#y = color(red)(2/3)x - color(blue)(5)#
