Answer :

We know that if a line L with slope m makes x-intercept d, then equation of L is


y = m(x − d).


If the distance is 3 units to the left of origin then d = -3


Given, slope, m = -2


y = (-2) (x (-3))


y = (-2) (x + 3)


y = -2x 6


2x + y + 6 = 0


Ans. The equation of the line is 2x + y + 6 = 0.
