y=mx+b
m=slope
b=yintercept
First plot a point for y_intercept (0,b)
Then use slope to get second point (rise/run)

(0,3) is correct but not your second point
lets look at slope 5/3 right?

slope = rise/run = 5/3
from any point if you go up 5 and to right 3 you will be on correct line

Or you can think about plugging in 0 for y you have
\[0 = \frac{5}{3} x + 3\]
So solve for x.
