# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line Y= (-2/3)x + 4?

Sep 7, 2016

Slope = $- \frac{2}{3}$ and y-intercept $= 4$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a straight in slope $\left(m\right)$ and intercept $\left(c\right)$ form is"

$y = m x + c$

In this example: $y = \left(- \frac{2}{3}\right) x + 4$

Hence $m = - \frac{2}{3}$ and $c = 4$

Therefore: Slope $= - \frac{2}{3}$ and y-intercept $= 4$
