Answer:

intercepts = #(-3, 0), (0, 3)#

On the rectangular coordinate system place a point at the intercepts and draw a line that passes through them.

Explanation:

To find #x#-intercept, set #y = 0#; #x = -3#

To find #y#-intercept, set #x = 0#, #-y = -3#

Divide by #-1#: #(-y)/-1 = -3/-1#

So the #y#-intercept #= (0, 3)#

On the rectangular coordinate system place a point at the intercepts and draw a line that passes through them.
