Refer Explanation

#### Explanation:

Given -

$x - y = 3$

It can be graphed by finding x and y intercepts.

x intercept

At $y = 0$

$x - 0 = 3$
$x = 3$

$\left(3 , 0\right)$ is a point along the x-axis.

y intercept

At $x = 0$

$0 - y = 3$
$y = - 3$
$0 , - 3$ is a point along the y-axis

Plot these two points. Join them with a straight line.
You have graphed.
