What is the slope of y=2/3x-1?

Sep 1, 2016

slope $= \frac{2}{3}$

Explanation:

The equation of a line in $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{slope-intercept form}}$ is

$\textcolor{red}{| \overline{\underline{\textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{y = m x + b} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{a}{a}} |}}}$
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

The equation here $y = \frac{2}{3} x - 1 \text{ is in this form}$

and by comparison of the 2 equations $m = \frac{2}{3}$

Thus the slope of this line is $\frac{2}{3}$
