Work Step by Step

To find the slope of the line, we need to locate two points on the line. From the graph, we can see that the line contains points $(0, -2)$ and $(3, 0)$. We can find the slope of this equation using the following formula: $m = \frac{y_2 - y_1}{x_2 - x_1}$, where $m$ is the slope and $(x_1, y_1)$ and $(x_2, y_2)$ are points on the line. Let's plug in our two points into this formula: $m = \frac{0 - (-2)}{3- 0}$ Simplify by adding or subtracting in the numerator and denominator: $m = \frac{2}{3}$ The answer is option $B$.
