##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

Use point slope form:

The equation of the line is

#### Explanation:

You can write the line in point-slope form, which uses a point and slope to make an equation. It looks like this:

where

Now we can apply this to our problem. We have a slope of

That's the equation of the line. Here's what it looks like:

graph{-(1/3)x+(2/3) [-8.89, 8.89, -4.444, 4.445]}
