For this question you will need to identify this as a linear equation, which will help you solve for the answer.


Currently, the equation is in the form y = mx + c, where 'm' represents the slope of the linear line and 'c' represents the y-intercept.

The slope of this equation is -1, and the y-int is #2/3#. Lucky for you, you now easily have the y-intercept.
To find the x-intercept is a little trickier, but not by much. You will have to let 'y' equal to 0, and solve for 'x' by using algebra. Here's my work below:

#y = -x + 2/3#
#0 = -x + 2/3#
#x = 2/3#

So the x-int is #2/3#, and the y-int is also #2/3#
