Answer:

See below

Explanation:

The #+2# tells us that the y-intercept is #2#.
When you multiply any number by #0#, you still get #0#.
Therefore, the point #{0,2}# is on this line.
Next, let's choose a value for #x# that is simple. I will choose #3#.
If #x=3#, then
#-1.5x# becomes #-4.5# and so
#-4.5+2=-2.5#
#therefore# the point #{3,-2.5}# is on this line.
