Let's look at our equation. It written in the form #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope and #b# is the y-intercept. The slope, therefore, is #1# and the y-intercept is #-3#.

Answer:

#"slope "=1," y-intercept "=-3#

Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

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

#y=x-3" is in this form"#

#"with slope "=1" and y-intercept "=-3#
