#### 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"#

#"rearrange "-2x-5y=6" into this form"#

#"add "2x" to both sides"#

#-5y=2x+6#

#"divide all terms by "-5#

#y=-2/5x-6/5larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-2/5" and y-intercept "=-6/5#
