#### Answer

$y=-\dfrac{7}{12}x-\dfrac{2}{3}$

#### Work Step by Step

Using $y=mx+b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the $y-$intercept, the equation of the line with the given slope $m= -\dfrac{7}{12}$ and the given $y-$intercept $b= -\dfrac{2}{3}$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y=-\dfrac{7}{12}x-\dfrac{2}{3} .\end{array}
