Answer:

The slope is #-2# and the #y#-intercept is at (#0,3#).

Explanation:

The "slope-intercept" form of a straight line equation is

#y = mx + b#,

where #m# is the slope and #b# is the #y#-intercept.

Your equation is

#y = -2x +3#

If we compare the two equations, we see that #m = -2# and #b = 3#.

So the slope is #-2# and the #y#-intercept is at (#0,3#).
