Answer:

#y# is a straight line through the origin with a slope of #-1/3#

Explanation:

The equation of a straight line in slope #(m)# and intercept #(c)# form is:
#y=mx+c#

In this example: #y=-1/3x#
#:. m=-1/3# and #c=0#

Hence: #y# is a straight line through the origin with a slope of #-1/3#

The graph of #y# is shown below.
