i need help on my help on my homework.

the question is... Consider the straight line 2x+3y-12=0 what is the gradient of this line?

i would be grateful if someone would help me please!

Answers
well we know that when in the form y = mx + c the gradient is m and the y intercept is c So the first thing you need to do is rearrange the equation to get y by itself on the left hand side. If you do that then 3y = -2x + 12 now divide everything by 3 to get y = -2/3 x + 4 so the gradient of the line is -2/3 and the y intercept will be + 4 Hope that helps
