See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the slope and y-intercept from the problem statement gives:

$y = \textcolor{red}{\frac{3}{5}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{- 3}$

$y = \textcolor{red}{\frac{3}{5}} x - \textcolor{b l u e}{3}$
