in the equation 3y - x=2
what is the slope of the line of this equation?

Using the equation y=mx+b you have to solve 3y-x=2 for Y.
M stands for slope and Y stands for Y intercept
Doing that I get y = 1/3x + 2/3

I hope that's what you are looking for!

Put it in point slope form:

y= 1/3 x + 2/3

The coefficent of x is the clope
