Answer:

Determine two points on the line. Plot the points and draw a straight line through the points.

Explanation:

#y=-3x+4# is in the slope-intercept form for a linear equation: #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope, and #b# is the y-intercept.

Point 1:
If #x=0;#
#y=-3*0+4=0+4=4#

Point 1#=##(0,4)#

Point 2:
#x=2;#
#y=-3*2+4=-6+4=-2#

Point 2:
#(2,-2)#
