See the entire solution process below:

#### Explanation:

We can rewrite this equation in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

$y = 3 x$ becomes:

$y = \textcolor{red}{3} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0}$

Therefore:

The slope is: $\textcolor{red}{m = 3}$

The y-intercept is: $\textcolor{b l u e}{b = 0}$ or $\left(0 , 0\right)$
