Lets start this over. Basically you have got your slope and your b, so you are pretty much set up.

he said y = 2x/3  19/3 you cant substract that correct

sarver1995 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it would be 2x/3  y = 19/3

okay i see that so far

sarver1995 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then i understand the 2/3x  y = 4/3  5 after this is where i get confused

From there, you must but it into standard form, having all the x's and y's on one side. Subtract y, and then subtract 4/3. Giving you 11/3=2/3xy

sarver1995 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
2/3xy = 11/3

GOODMAN Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes. Only dont forget the () sign in front of the 2/3

Okay, then you can get rid of the fractions by multiply each side by 3.
