Work Step by Step

The given line has a slope of -3 and a y-intercept of $(0,-\frac{1}{5})$. We can write this line in the slope-intercept form $y=mx+b$ (where m is the slope of the line, and the point $(0,b)$ is the y-intercept). In this case, $m=-3$ and $b=-\frac{1}{5}$. Therefore, $y=-3x-\frac{1}{5}$.
