I can't figure out how to find the y-intercept because it's a decimal. The y-intercept has to be in a fraction

first, we pick a point on the line that isn't on a decimal (2,1) looks good now we plug them into the equation y = mx + b where x = 2, y = 1, m = slope = (-2/3), and b is the y intercept

Once I put it all together I get -0.33333333333, how do I put it in fraction form?
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
hm, take a look at the graph, the y-intercept should be positive
Vocaloid
  • Vocaloid
1 = (-2/3)*2 + b solve for b

Oops I think I did it wrong :(

start by finding (-2/3)*2

It equals -1.33333333

Then once I add it to 1 I get 2.333333333
