# What is the slope and intercept of 3x+2y=6?

Aug 16, 2016

slope $= m = - \frac{3}{2}$ and y-intercept $= c = 3$

#### Explanation:

Change the equation into the form $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{c}$

$3 x + 2 y = 6$

$2 y = - 3 x + 6$

$y = \textcolor{red}{- \frac{3}{2}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{3}$

slope $= m = - \frac{3}{2}$ and y-intercept $= c = 3$
