You use the equation


The equation given to you is almost in slope-intercept form, or y=mx+b. However, there is a -3 in front of the y. Therefore, we must divide the whole equation by -3.

Your equation now looks like this:

Now that it is is slope-intercept form, we know that the m in y=mx+b is the slope. In this case, the m value is -2 so we know the slope is -2.
