Refer to the image below for the graph.

Work Step by Step

The given line has a slope of $-\frac{2}{3}$ and a y-intercept of $5$. To graph the given line using the slope and y-intercept, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept point $(0, 5)$. (2) From $(0, 5)$, move 2 units down (the rise), and move 3 units to the right (the run). These moves lead to the point $(3, 3)$. (3) Connect $(0, 5)$ and $(3, 3)$ using a line.
