Given the slope and the y-intercept of the line, we can start writing its equation by using first the slope-intercept form which is generally written as
y = mx + b
Substituting the known values,
y = (-1/3)x + 10/3
Multiplying 3 to both sides of the equation gives,
3y = -x + 10
Thus, the general form of the line is x + 3y = 10.
