Answer:

#y = -2/3x + 5#

Explanation:

Use the slope-intercept formula to write this equation.

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 slope and y-intercept given in the problem results in:

#y = color(red)(-2/3)x + color(blue)(5)#
