the standard equation of a line is y=mx + b where m is the slope and b is the y intercept (in other words where x = 0). In this case, the m would equal three. To find the y intercept plug in 0 for x:

y= 3(0) - 6.

so

the y intercept = -6

This equation is in slope-intercept form of y = mx + b. m will be the value of the slope and b will be the value of the y-intercept.

So you can immediately "read off" your answer:

Slope(m) = 3

y-intercept(b) = -6

slope is the number next to x, in this case, 3

to find the y intercept set x equal to zero, you will get -6
