**Steve**, Friday, December 27, 2013 at 8:09pmsince the given line has slope -2, we want slope 1/2.

So, y = x/2 + b

Since when x=0, y=3, b=3 and

y = x/2 + 3

So, when y=0, x=?

**John**, Friday, December 27, 2013 at 9:14pmSo would the answer be 6 or 3 then

**Reiny**, Friday, December 27, 2013 at 9:27pmNeither, it would be -6

taking Steve's equation of y= x/2 + 3 , and letting y = 0

0 = x/2 + 3

-3 = x/2

-6 = x
