$\text{slope "=-2," y-intercept } = - 3$

#### Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = - 2 x - 3 \text{ is in this form}$

$\text{with slope m "=-2" and y-intercept } b = - 3$
