Refer to the graph below.

Work Step by Step

The given equation has: slope = $-\dfrac{3}{2}$ y-intercept: $(0, -2)$ To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, -2)$ (2) Use the slope to plot another point. From $(0, -2)$, move 3 units down (the rise) and 2 units to the right (the run) to reach $(2, -5)$. Plot $(2, -5)$. (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.)
