We don't provide graphs.

To get the missing "y" value for each point, use the corresponding x value (which is provided) and plug it into the equation y = (-3/5)x - 4

For example, when x = -5,

y = (-3/5)*(-5) -4 = 3 -4 = -1

so the first point is (-5,-1)

Now, you do the other two points and plot the graph. The slope of the line should be -3/5.
