#### Explanation:

#"simplifying and rearranging"#

#rArr3y+9=0larrcolor(blue)"subtract 9 from both sides"#

#rArr3y=-9rArry=(-9)/3=-3#

#y=-3" is a special line in that it is horizontal and "#

#"parallel to the x-axis passing through all points in the plane"#

#"with a y-coordinate "=-3#

#"since it is parallel to the x-axis the slope "=0#

#"and y-intercept "=-3#

#"the graph of "y=-3" is shown below"#
