Answer:

slope #=-6#

y intercept #=-3#

x intercept #=-1/2#

Explanation:

the slope is the number before the x, so
slope #=-6#

the y intercept in the number added, so
y intercept #=-3#

the x intercept is where the line crosses the x axis, so it's where the y value is zero. therefore, we can say that the equation equals zero, and solve for x.
#0=-6x-3#
#3=-6x#
#-1/2=x#
x intercept #=-1/2#
