True

Work Step by Step

Let us put the given equation into slope-intercept form using equation solving techniques and equality properties so that we can easily identify the slope: $$3x-2y=-4$$$$3x-3x-2y=-4-3x$$$$-2y=-4-3x$$$$\frac{-2y}{-2}=\frac{-4-3x}{-2}$$$$y=\frac{3}{2}x+2$$ Since $\frac{3}{2}$ takes the place of $m$ when the equation is in slope-intercept form, it is indeed the slope.
