Answer:

#x# intercept is #-3# and #y# intercept is #3/4#

Explanation:

For #y=0#,
#color(white)xx4xxcolor(red)0-x=3#
#=>color(red)(-1xx)-x=color(red)(-1xx)3#
#=>x=-3#

For #x=0#,
#color(white)xx4y=3#
#=>color(red)(1/4xx)4y=color(red)(1/4xx)3#
#=>y=3/4#

Thus #x# intercept is #-3# and #y# intercept is #3/4#
