In the standard (x,y) coordinate plane, what is the slope of the line with the equation 2y - 6x = 4?

A.) 2

B.) 3

C.) 4

D.) 6

E.) -3

A.) 2

B.) 3

C.) 4

D.) 6

E.) -3

Slope-intercept form for the equation of a line is y = mx + b.

m is the slope {how much the line rises over how much it runs}

b is the y-intercept {where the line crosses the y-axis}

2y - 6x = 4

2y = 6x + 4 {added 6x to both sides}

y = 3x + 2 {divided both sides by 2}

slope = 3 {the number in front of the x, when the equation is in slope-intercept form}

**B.) 3**
