# Math Help - Finding equation of a line

1. ## Finding equation of a line

Find in the form ax+by+c=0 the equation of a line with gradient -2/3 and y intercept 2

how do i do this i currently feel like this

2. When we use slope intercept form, we have y=mx+b. m is the slope or gradient and b is the y intercept.

Just enter your values, then rearrange it in standard form.

so then i would get -2/3x+2=y

then where do i go

4. clear the fraction ... multiply every term by 3, then rearrange to the desired form.
