Hey guys,

the task: Express y+4=-2/3 (x+2) in slope/intercept form.

My answer:

y+4=-2/3x -4/6

y=-2/3x -4/6 -4

y=-2/3x -4/6 -24/6

y=-2/3x -28/6

y=-2/3x -14/3

I think there is a mistake or not?

You made a mistake when distributing the -2/3 to the 2 on the right side in your first step. You should get -4/3.
