Find the y-intercept of the curve that passes through the point (4/9,1) and whose slope at (x,y) is −2/y^{3}.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

woudnt the y-int be y=-2x/y^{3}+ 5.5 ?

i got it by plugging the slope into m in the equation y=mx+b

then plugged in the given points to get b..

but the question wants a numerical solution :S
