1. the xintercept of a line is 3. the yintercept of the line is 6. what is the slope of the line?
2. what is the equation in slopeintercept form of the line described in Exercise 1?

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.
