##### 2 Answers

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"here "m=-2/3#

#rArry=-2/3x+blarrcolor(blue)"is the partial equation"#

#"to find b substitute "(-5,2)" into the partial equation"#

#2=10/3+brArrb=6/3-10/3=-4/3#

#rArry=-2/3x-4/3larrcolor(red)"in slope-intercept form"#
