Answer:

We're given the line in slope-intercept form so see the y-intercept is #3# and setting #y=0# we solve for the x-intercept of #4#.

Explanation:

For the y-intercept we substitute #x=0# and get #y=3# or we can just read off #3# from the equation given in slope-intercept form.

For the x-intercept we substitute #y=0# and solve for #x#.

#0 = -3/4 x + 3#

#3/4 x = 3#

#x = 4# is the x intercept.
