m = 3 , y-intercept = -5

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line in the form y = mx + c , where m represents the gradient ( slope ) and c, the y-intercept , is useful in that m and c can be extracted quite ' easily'.

the line here is in this form : y = 3x - 5

hence m = 3 and y-intercept = -5

graph{3x-5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
