Solution :-

Slope, m = -2

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

So, y = (-2) (x – (-3))

y = (-2) (x + 3)

y = -2x – 6

2x + y + 6 = 0

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