Refer to the graph below.

Work Step by Step

RECALL: The slope is the ratio of the rise (change in y-value) over the run (change in x-value). To graph the line with the given conditions, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the point$(2, -4)$. (2) Use the slope to plot a second point. With a slope of $\frac{3}{4}$, the line has a rise of $3$ and a run of $4$. Thus, from $(2, -4)$, move 3 units up and 4 units to the right to reach $(6, -1)$. Plot $(6, -1)$. (3) Connect the two points using a straight line. (Refer to the graph in the answer part above.)
