Answer:

By slope I assume you mean gradient?

Explanation:

We know the general form of a straight line graph is

#y=mx+c#

where #m# is the gradient
and #c# is the y-intercept.

#therefore# we have the equation #y=10/3 x-12#

Referring back to general equation we can deduce that

#c = -12# and #m=10/3#

#m# is the gradient (slope) #-># gradient #= 10/3#
