Write an equation ​(a) in​ slope-intercept form and ​(b) in standard form for the line passing through ​(−2,4) and parallel to x+3y=5.

I am stuck on this question on MyMath lab and keep getting it wrong. The last question they had me add 5 to both sides but I am so lost and I got the answer wrong " -x/4 + 17/4" 
Can you PLEASE tell me how you got your answer? I have to write them in both Slope-intercept form and Standard form.

Unfortunately, the answer is wrong for the slope-intercept form. The 3  1/3 was wrong.
