# How do you find the slope and y intercept of y = x -3?

Dec 31, 2015

To find intercepts, plug in 0 for x or for y.

#### Explanation:

y = x - 3
y = 0 - 3
y = -3 ---> (0, -3)

0 = x - 3
0 + 3 = x
3 = x ---> (3, 0)

The x intercept is at (3, 0) and the y intercept is at (0, -3)

Hopefully this helps!
