Answer:

slope #=2/3#

Explanation:

The equation of a line in #color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is

#color(red)(|bar(ul(color(white)(a/a)color(black)(y=mx+b)color(white)(a/a)|)))#
where m represents the slope and b, the y-intercept.

The equation here #y=2/3x-1" is in this form"#

and by comparison of the 2 equations #m=2/3#

Thus the slope of this line is #2/3#
