    Hey there, in order to find out what graph corresponds to the equation, you have to convert it to slope-intercept form. y=mx+b

    Add x to both sides, then divide the equation by -2 to get it to be just y

    y = -3 + x/-2

    Yes, so the equation would be \[y=-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }-3\]

    First things first, our slope is negative, so the line will be going down from left to right.

    Not quite, remember, the y-intercept is -3. That is when the line crosses the y axis.

    Because it crosses the y-int at -3 and it goes descneding from left to right
