In this case, and or y-intercept at (0,-3) Step 2. Starting with the y-intercept at (0,-3) or x=0 and y=-3, we move two units to the right and one unit up since the slope is 1/2. This means we have another point at (0+2,-3+1) or (2, -2). Step 3. Use the two points (0,-3) and (2,-2) to plot the line. I hope the above steps were helpful.
