# Find the slope and the y-intercept of the line which has the equation 2x + 3y = 9.

We will use the concept of straight lines in order to find the slope and y-intercept.

## Answer: Slope and the y-intercept of the line which has the equation 2x + 3y = 9 is - 2 / 3 and 3 respectively.

Let us see how we will use the concept of straight lines in order to find the slope and y-intercept.

**Explanation**:

In order to deal with the equation, we will first convert the equation 2x + 3y = 9 in slope-intercept form that is y = mx + c.

In the equation y = mx + c, m is the slope and c is the y-intercept.

Let us transpose 2x on the right-hand side and divide the whole equation by 3. On performing this transformation we get y = (-2 / 3) x + 3
