The typical form of a linear equation is 2x+3y=12. To transform the equation for y to the slope-intercept form, y=mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept, has to be solved.

$2x+3y=12$

$3y=-2x+12$

$y=-\frac{2}{3}x+\frac{12}{3}$$y=-\frac{2}{3}x+4$, so answer is $-\frac{2}{3}$

$2x+3y=12$

$3y=-2x+12$

$y=-\frac{2}{3}x+\frac{12}{3}$$y=-\frac{2}{3}x+4$, so answer is $-\frac{2}{3}$
