Answer:

Solve for #y# to put in slope-intercept form:

Explanation:

To find #m# and #b# solve for #y# to put this equation in slope intercept form.

#color(red)(3x) - 3x + y = color(red)(3x) + 6#

#0 + y = color(red)(3x) + 6#

#y = 3x + 6#

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

#y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b# is the y-intercept value.

#y = color(red)(3)x + color(blue)(6)#

The slope is #color(red)(m = 3)#

The y-intercept is #color(blue)(b = 6)# or (0, 6)
