The general slope intercept form of straight line is;

y = mx + c

y= dependent variable and plotted along vertical axis

x = independent variable and plotted along horizontal axis

m = slope of the straight line

c= y-intercept

The given equation is y= -5/6 x - 7.

By comparing given equation and general equation;

m= -5/6 and c=-7

The slope of the straight line is -5/6 and y-intercept is -7.
