Determine the slope of the line.

The line whose equation is 3x-2y=8

Solve for y by putting y on one side and everything else on the other.

-2y=8-3x. Multiply by -1.

2y = 3x -8 and divide by 2

y=(3/2)x -8/2 or

y= (3/2)x -4

The form for a straight line is

y = mx + b

where m is the slope and b is the y intercept.
