Answer:

See explanation.

Explanation:

To find slope and #Y# intercept you have to write the linear function in a form

#y=ax+b#

Here you get:

#4x-1/3y=-2#

#-1/3y=-4x-2#

#y=12x+6#

When the function is in the form #y=ax+b# we can write that:

  • the slope is #a#,

  • the #Y# intercept is point #(0,b)#

In the given function we have:

  • slope #a=12#

  • #Y# intercept is #(0,6)#
