#### Answer

$$2$$

#### Work Step by Step

The equation for the line given by $$6x-3y=12$$ can be rewritten as $$3y=6x-12$$ or $$y=2x-4$$ The equation of a line in slope-intercept form is $$y=mx+b$$ where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y-intercept. So, for this line and any lines parallel to it, the slope is $$m=2$$
