(a) $$\displaystyle{y}={b}_{{0}}+{b}_{{1}}{x}$$
where $$\displaystyle{b}_{{0}}$$ is the y intercept
$$\displaystyle{b}_{{1}}$$ is the slope
Slope = -0.75
y-intercept = -5
from the linear equation
$$\displaystyle{b}_{{0}}=-{5}$$
$$\displaystyle{b}_{{1}}=-{0.75}$$
(b) The slope is downward in graph. Because, the slope is negative value.
(c) Two point to graph:
