# How do you find the slope and y intercept of y=2/3x-8?

Mar 4, 2018

#### Answer:

$\text{slope "=2/3" and y-intercept } = - 8$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = \frac{2}{3} x - 8 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=2/3" and y-intercept } = - 8$
