# Which equation has a slope of -2/3 and a y-intercept of 5?

Jan 8, 2017

$y = - \frac{2}{3} x + 5$

#### Explanation:

Use the slope-intercept formula to write this equation.

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 color(blue)(b is the y-intercept value.

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

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{2}{3}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{5}$
