y= -1/5 x+ 6 remember that slope intercept form is y=mx+b the m is the slope and the b is the y value in (0,6) aka y-intercept   so all you have to do is swap the slope given with m and swap the b with the y-intercept

The equation of a linear function is y=mx+b The point is to calculate b, since m is given (slope=-1/5) & x & y are given x=0 & y=6 [from the intercept value that is (x=0, & y=6). Plug in: y=mx+b 6=(-1/5) x (0) +b ===> b=6 & the final equation is y=(-1/5)x + 6
