6-26.

A line with slope $- \frac { 2 } { 3 }$ passes through the point $(−12,16)$.

1. What is an equation of the line?

Remember that the formula for the equation of a line is
$y=mx+b$

Substitute the slope for $m$. Then, substitute the given point for $x$ and $y$, respectively.

Solve for $b$.

2. What is the $x$-intercept of the line?

Substitute for $y$ in the equation from part (a).
