Find the slope and yintercept of the equation.
y+3=1/3x

The equation of a straight line is :
y = mx + b
m = Slope
b = the Y Intercept
y =  1 / 3 x  3
Slope =  1 / 3
Y Intercept =  3 
how would it be 3 on y intercept?

A yintercept is a point where the graph of a function or relation intersects with the yaxis of the coordinate system.
As such, these points satisfy x=0
y(x=0) =  ( 1 / 3 ) 0  3
y(x=0) = 0  3
y(x=0) =  3
