How do I write a slope-intercept form equation from a table?

If I have the table,
x         y
-5      -7
0       -5
3       -3

How would I write a slope-intercept form equation using this table?

Sorry:  To finish, now we have the slope m
The slope intercept form is y=mx + b
where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept
y = (2/3)x + b
Since the y-intercept is the point (0, b) we 
already have b from the given point (0, -5)
y = (2/3)x - 5
