Answer:y=-1/5x-1/5

Step-by-step explanation:I assume you were saying that the y-int= -1/5 and the slope= -1/5. If so, here we go.

Slope intercept form is y=mx+b

y= y

m= slope

x= x

b= y-intercept

from here on you just plug in numbers

y= (-1/5)x+(-1/5)

Since b is a negative, it changes to subtraction because you don’t add negatives

so the answer would be

y= -1/5x-1/5
