This equation is already in the slope-intercept form y = mx + b

Therefore, the slope is 2/3 and the y-intercept (where the line intersects the y-axis) is 3

The line given is in slope intercept form y =mx + b where the slope is m, and the y intercept is b. For the line y = (2/3)x + 3. the slope m = (2/3) and the intercept b = 3.

y=mx+b is a slope intercept form of a straight line. It represents a straight line that has slope m and crosses the y-axis at point (0,b)

For y=2/3x+3 m=2/3, b=3 (m is the coefficient of x)
