# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line y=x-2/3?

Mar 16, 2018

$\text{slope "=1," y-intercept } = - \frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

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

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

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

$y = x - \frac{2}{3} \text{ is in this form}$

$\Rightarrow \text{slope "=1" and y-intercept } = - \frac{2}{3}$
