I think this might help: in a graph with an x-axis and y-axis, there are four sections (called quadrants). Top right, top left, bottom left, and bottom right. 0 is always 0 - there's no difference between 0 and -0 (so it's easier to always use 0)

In your question, you've said that the y-intercept is (0, -3) and the x-intercept is (1, 0). If that's right, then the slope is (change in y) / (change in x).

change in y = 0 - (-3) = 3

change in x = 1 - 0 = 1.

So the slope is 3/1 or 3.
