#### Answer

Refer to the graph below.

#### Work Step by Step

The given equation has: slope = $-\dfrac{4}{3}$ y-intercept: $(0, 3)$ To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, 3)$ (2) Use the slope to plot another point. From $(0, 3)$, move 4 units down (the rise) and 3 units to the right (the run) to reach $(3, -1)$. Plot $(3, -1)$. (3) Connect the two points using a line to complete the graph. (Refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.)
