Work Step by Step

The y-intercept is the point where the line crosses the y (vertical) axis. Choices G and I can be eliminated because the y-intercept is not -2. The slope of a line is the ratio of rise to run. A slope of 3 means that for each 3 units of vertical change (rise) there is 1 unit of horizontal change (run). Choice F has a slope of 3, so is the correct choice. (Choice G also has a slope of 3, but was eliminated due to its y-intercept.)
