Answer:

y = -19/15x - 2

Explanation:

To determine the linear function for this problem all we need to do is use the slope-intercept formula.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

#y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b# is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the information given:

#y = color(red)(-19/15)x + color(blue)(-2)#

#y = color(red)(-19/15)x - color(blue)(2)#
