Answer

$\text{Slope: } -\dfrac{9}{10} \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } -5$

Work Step by Step

Using $y=mx+b$ where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y-$intercept, then the equation $ y=-\dfrac{9}{10}x-5 $ has the following characteristics: \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \text{Slope: } -\dfrac{9}{10} \\\\\text{$y-$intercept: } -5 .\end{array}
