$y=-\frac{5}{3}x$ slope = $-\frac{5}{3}$ y-intercept = 0
RECALL: The slope-intercept form of a line's equation is given as $y=mx+b$ where m = slope and b = y-intercept. Divide $-3$ on both sides of the equation to obtain: $y=\frac{5x}{-3} \\y=-\frac{5}{3}x$ The line has a slope of $-\frac{5}{3}$ and a y-intercept of $0$.
