Answer

Slope: -$\frac{2}{3}$ (1.5, 0)

Work Step by Step

This equation is written in the form $(y−y1)=m(x−x1)$, where $m$ is the slope of the line (m equals -$\frac{2}{3}$ in this case). Substituting 1.5 in for x in the equation $y-1=-\frac{2}{3}\left(x-0\right)$ yields $y = 0$, or the point (1.5, 0).
