$y = - 2 x + 3$

#### Explanation:

The point $\left(0 , 3\right)$ is not just any point, but is on the y-axis (because $x = 0$)

It is in fact the value of 'c' (the y-intercept)$\text{ } c = 3$

Now you have been given $m = - 2 \mathmr{and} c = 3$

Substitute them into the 'slope-intercept' from of the straight line"

$y = m x + c \text{ }$ can be written as $y = - 2 x + 3$
