# How to find the y-intercept given y= -5/3x+ 2?

This equation is given to you in slope-intercept form, which is generally described as $y = m x + b$ where $m$ is the slope of the line and $b$ is the y-intercept.
So, with this equation, $y = - \setminus \frac{5}{3} + 2$, we can tell that the slope of the line is $- \setminus \frac{5}{3}$ and the y-intercept is at $2$.
