Answer:

The y-intercept is 2.

Explanation:

This equation is given to you in slope-intercept form, which is generally described as #y=mx+b# where #m# is the slope of the line and #b# is the y-intercept.

So, with this equation, #y=-\frac5 3+2#, we can tell that the slope of the line is #-\frac5 3# and the y-intercept is at #2#.
