graph{x-3 [-0.392, 4.62, -3.096, -0.59]}

#### Explanation:

We can express any linear equation in

in the form

(here the

*1.we want to find where the line intersects the y axis*

- automatically the
#value# of#x# will become#0#

we are left with#-# #y/b# =#3#

by putting#b=1# we get#y=-3#

the line intersects the y axis at#(0,-3)# - in the same way we can also find out here the line intersects the axis

it will be#(3,0)#

in terms of plotting the

points on the
