slope = $\frac{3}{4}$ y-intercept = $-3$
RECALL: The slope-intercept form of a line's equation is $y=mx+b$, where $m$=slope and $b$=the y-intercept. The given equation is in slope-intercept form with $m=\frac{3}{4}$ and $b=-3$. Thus, the equation has: slope = $\frac{3}{4}$ y-intercept = $-3$ To graph this equation, perform the following steps: (1) Create a table of values by assigning different values to $x$ and then solving for the corresponding value of y for each one. (Refer to the attached image below for the table.) (2) Plot each ordered pair, and then connect the points using a straight-edge. (Refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.)
