Point-slope form is

y-intercept form is

**Point-slope form.**

Slope,

Point=

Point-slope formula.

Substitute the values for

**y-intercept form.**

Slope,

y-intercept formula.

Substitute the values for

Flip the equation (optional).

Add 2/3 to both sides.

Make the denominators the same.

Now we can write the equation of the line in slope-intercept form.
