Answer:

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 = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

#y = 3x# becomes:

#y = color(red)(3)x + color(blue)(0)#

Therefore:

The slope is: #color(red)(m = 3)#

The y-intercept is: #color(blue)(b = 0)# or #(0, 0)#
