    Answer:

    -\dfrac{2}{3}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    When variable y is said to be proportional to another variable x, it is written as:

    y \propto x

    To introduce the equality sign, we introduce what is called the constant of proportionality, say k and write the above as:

    y=kx

    Comparing the given equation:

    y=-\frac{2}{3}x

    We can see that our constant of proportionality:

    k=-\dfrac{2}{3}
