Determine the slope of the line.
The line whose equation is 3x2y=8
Solve for y by putting y on one side and everything else on the other.
2y=83x. 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.
