For the equation in the form $$ax + by = c$$ Slope is given by: $Slope = -\frac{x \; \; coefficient}{y \; \; coefficient}$

Solve for y to get $\Large 3x - 3y = 4$ $\Large -3y = - 3x + 4$ $\Large y = \frac{- 3x + 4}{-3}$ $\Large y = \frac{-3x}{-3} + \frac{4}{-3}$ $\Large y = x - \frac{4}{3}$

So what is the slope of $\Large y = x - \frac{4}{3}$
