Answer

The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

We know that it is a straight line because x is directly proportional to y, meaning that y is set equal to x times a number. We know that this line goes through the origin because there is nothing added to or subtracted from x or y on either side of the equation. This means that the y-intercept is 0, meaning that the graph goes through the origin.
