## Answers ( No )

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)
