Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

We can rewrite the equation as:

#y = -3x + 0#

This equation is now in the slope-intercept form. 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.

For: #y = color(red)(-3)x + color(blue)(0)# the slope is: #color(red)(m = -3)#

Answer:

#-3#

Explanation:

This equation can be rewritten as

#y=-3x+0#

Writing it in this way puts it into more obvious slope-intercept form

#y=mx+b#, where the coefficient on the #x# term is the slope.

We see that the coefficient on #x#, is #-3#. This is our slope.

Hope this helps!
