Use the short formula..
y  y1 = m(xx1)
y  (5) = 2/3 (x  2)

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

so it would be 2x/3  y = 19/3

y  y1 = m(xx1)
y  (5) = 2/3 (x  2)
y+5=2/3x + 4/3

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

2/3xy = 11/3

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