1. The xintercept coordinates are (x1,y1) = (3,0).
The yintercept coordinates are
(x2,y2) = (0,6).
The slope is
m = (y2y1)/(x2x1)
Do the calculations and see what you get.
2. After you have solved for m, write the equation on the form
y = m x + b
You can use that equation with either (x1,y1) or (x2,y2) to figure out what b is.
If you don't attempt these yourself you will not learn the subject. Let us know what you get if you want us to verify your answers.
