    The equation is y= -5/2x + (-10)
    To find the y-intercept you use the equation.
    y= -5/2x + b
    You substitute y with the y value which is 5 and x with the x value which is -6. You multiply -5/2 by -6 which gives us 30/2 which equals to 15. Then you subtract 15.
    5= -5/2(-6) + b
    5-15  =  15 – 15      
    b= -10
    The slope is -5/2 and the y-intercept is -10

    So the equation of the line is y= -5/2x + (-10)
