#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"rearrange "1/3x+y=2" into this form"#

#"subtract "1/3x" from both sides"#

#y=-1/3x+2larrcolor(blue)"in slope-intercept form"#

#"with slope "=-1/3" and y-intercept "=2#
