# What is the slope of the line represented by the equation y = (2/3)x - 4?

Jan 15, 2017

The slope is $\frac{2}{3}$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in the slope-intercept form.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

$y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and color(blue)(b is the y-intercept value.

Therefore:

The slope of this line is $\textcolor{red}{m = \frac{2}{3}}$

The y-intercept is $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = - 4}$
