# How do you write the equation y-1/3=-2(x+1/3) in slope intercept form?

Rearrange the equations so as to obtain 'y' as the only value on one side and simplify.

#### Explanation:

Slope-intercept form:

$y = m x + c$

So

$y = - 2 \left(x + \frac{1}{3}\right) + \frac{1}{3}$

$y = - 2 x - \frac{2}{3} + \frac{1}{3}$

Therefore,

$y = - 2 x - \frac{1}{3}$

where the coefficient of 'x' is the slope and the value of 'c' is the y-intercept.
