Question

What is the slope of the line y = negative 2 over 3 x ?

  1. negative 2 over 3
  2. 0
  3. 2 over 3
  4. 3 over 2

Hint:

Slope of a line (m) with equation y = mx + c is the rate of change of y-coordinates for a given change in the x-coordinates.

The correct answer is: negative 2 over 3


    GIVEN-
    y = -2/3x
    TO FIND-
    Slope = m
    SOLUTION-
    We know that equation of a line in slope intercept form can be written as y = mx + c, where m = slope and c = y-intercept.
    Comparing the given equation i.e. y = -2/3x with y = mx + c, we get-
    Slope = m = -2/3
    FINAL ANSWER-
    Option 'a' i.e. '-2/3' is the correct answer to the given question.
