Answer:

#m= 2/3 and c = 0#

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 #y =mx+c#

We have that form here: #y = 2/3x+0#

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

#y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(c)#

#y = color(red)(2/3)x + color(blue)(0)#

Therefore the slope, #color(red)(m = 2/3)#

and the y-intercept is the point #color(blue)((0,0)#

Answer:

#"slope "=2/3," y-intercept "=0#

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#
