$\text{slope "=-1/3," y-intercept } = 2$

Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$\text{rearrange "1/3x+y=2" into this form}$

$\text{subtract "1/3x" from both sides}$

$y = - \frac{1}{3} x + 2 \leftarrow \textcolor{b l u e}{\text{in slope-intercept form}}$

$\text{with slope "=-1/3" and y-intercept } = 2$
