Answer:

#"slope "=-1/2," y-intercept "=1/3#

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 "2-6y=3x" into this form"#

#"subtract 2 from both sides"#

#rArr-6y=3x-2#

#"divide all terms by "-6#

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

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