Because your equation is in slope-intercept form (y=mx+b), you already know the slope (m) is -3.

Choose two values for x that are easy to compute with.
x=0, y=(0+11) = 11
x=1, y=(-3+11) = 8

Slope = ∆y/∆x = (8-11)/(1-0) = -3/1 = -3

We have shown that -3 is the slope as computed from the points (0, 11), (1, 8).
