Convert the equation to the

#### Explanation:

in the

m - = the slope think m mountain ski slope.

b = the y intercept think b beginning where x = 0

Move the x to the right side of the equation.

Divide both sides by 3 to change 3y to 1y

m the slope =

b the y intercept =

y-int = -2

#### Explanation:

Slope intercept form is:

**slope
#color(blue)(b) =#y-int**

y-int = -2
