$\text{slope "=-1/3," y-intercept } = 6$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = 6 - \frac{x}{3} \text{ can be expressed as}$

$y = - \frac{1}{3} x + 6 \leftarrow \textcolor{b l u e}{\text{in slope-intercept form}}$

$\text{with slope "=-1/3" and y-intercept } = 6$
