Answer

$y=-3/2x$

Work Step by Step

To put into slope intercept form, we need to find the y-intercept and the slope of the line. Recall, slope equals rise over run. We see that for every 3 the line goes down, it goes over 2, so we know that the slope is -3/2. We see that the line crosses the y-axis at the y-value of 0, so we know that the y-intercept is 0. Thus, we find the equation: $y=-3/2x$.
