Answer

(C)

Work Step by Step

We are given the slope $-3$. Since the slope is negative, the graph must decrease when going from left to right. Only graphs (C) and (F) fit this criteria. The slope in (C) is steeper than the slope in (F), indicating a larger negative slope value. The only other negative slope occurs in #62 ($-1/3$). Since that slope is a smaller negative number, it must correspond to (F). Thus $-3$ must correspond to (C).
