The equation is in standard form...
Slope is -A/B
A negative of a negative is positive....
You can just choose 2 points on the line, and get the slope by
m = ( Y2 - Y1 ) / (X2 - X1 )
Intercepts : ( 0 , -6 ) ( 4, 0 )
m = 0 - ( - 6) = 6 = 3
4 - 0 4 2
Re arrange the equation to slope intercept form
y=mx + b where m is slope and b is y intercept
3x - 2y =12
-2y = 12 - 3x
2y = 3x -12
y = 3/2x - 6
m = slope = 3/2
