Is this correct?

2x - 3y =6
- 3y = -2x + 6

y = 2/3x -3

m=2/3 slope is 2/3

b= is -2 y-Intercept is (0,2)

y = 2/3x -3..............6/(-3) = -2

y = 2/3 * x - 2

m=2/3 slope is 2/3 ...........correct

b= is -2 ...........correct

y intercept is (0,2)...........Incorrect

y intercept is (0,-2)
This (new) question has been "split" from your previous thread. In the future, kindly please start a new thread for a new problem. Thank you.
