    Set \(x=0\) and solve for \(y\).

    For the y-intercept, x = 0 3(0) + 4y = 36 4y = 36 y = 9 Hence the y-intercept is (0, 9)

    That's correct. That's slope intercept form (y = mx + b), here "b" is your y-intercept.

    Sure. If you need to. Then your slope is "m" (-3/4)

    So then from 9, you can either move down 3 and right 4, or up 3 and left 4.

    You can also find the x-intercept by setting y = 0, and solving for x.
