# What is the slope of 4x – 6y = 12?

Feb 19, 2017

$\frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

Subtract $4 x$ from both sides.

$- 6 y = - 4 x + 12$

Divide both sides by $- 6$.

$y = \frac{4}{6} x - 2$

The slope is the coefficient of the $x$ term. So, the slope would be $\frac{4}{6}$, which can be simplified to $\frac{2}{3}$.
