# How do you find the slope and intercept of #y = 2/3 x#?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

In order to identify the slope and y-intercept from an equation of a straight line, it is easiest if it is the form

We have that form here:

The slope is the numerical co-efficient of the x-term and the y-intercept is given by the constant term

Therefore the slope,

and the y-intercept is the point

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in

#color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

#y=2/3x" is in this form as " y=2/3x+0#

#rArr"slope "=m=2/3" and y-intercept "=b=0#
