Answer

$y=\frac{2}{3}x+\frac{7}{3}$

Work Step by Step

The slope is $\frac{2}{3}$, as the graph moves up two units as it moves right three units. One ordered pair of the graph is (-2,1). We can plug this into slope-intercept form to find the y-intercept. $y=mx+b$ $1=\frac{2}{3}(-2)+b$ $\frac{7}{3}=b$ $y=\frac{2}{3}x+\frac{7}{3}$
