# How do you find the slope and y intercept to sketch y=-2/3x+7?

Apr 20, 2018

Slope $= - \frac{2}{3}$

$y$-intercept $= 7$

#### Explanation:

The given equation

$y = - \frac{2}{3} x + 7$

is in the slope-intercept form of a straight line equation, i.e.

$y = m x + c$

where

• $m$ is the slope
• $c$ is the $y$-intercept

So according to this, the slope will be $- \frac{2}{3}$ and the $y$-intercept will be $7$.
