Through (-3,2). m=0Answer by Edwin McCravy(9719)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!```We plot the point (-3,2) which the line is to go through: Since the line's slope is 0 it is a horizontal line. We'll draw it: We see that its y-intercept is (0,2) so b = 2. And we are given that the slope m = 0, so we substitute in y = mx + b and get y = 0x + 2 But we usually don't write "0x" but it's still understood: y = 2 That's the equation. Horizontal lines' equations do not contain an x-term because it is just multiplied by 0 and usually not written, but it's understood that the reason it's not written is because the slope is 0. So think of it as y = 0x + 2 but just write y = 2. Edwin```
