The slope intercept form of a line is

y = mx + b

where m is the slope of the line 

and b is the y-intercept.


Here, m = 3/2 and b = -2

So, equation of the line is 



We already know one point on the line which is the y-intercept (0, -2).

Now we need one more point to plot the line. 

At x = 2



So, the other point on the line is (2, 1).

Draw a line passing through these two points.
