Answer:

You have only the x-intercept.

Explanation:

Your equation represents a vertical line passing through #x=-3#.
It doesn't have a y-intercept and its slope is indeterminate;
The slope is given as #(Deltay)/(Deltax)# but #x# is always #-3# so that #Deltax=0# for any #Deltay#: the expression for the slope gives you a division by zero which is indeterminate.
The only thing is the x-intercept that will be found at exactly #x=-3#.
