Answer:

B

Step-by-step explanation:

One approach is to plug (2, -2) to every function and only B will work.

Choice A) y = 3x + 4

-2 = 3(2) + 4

-2 = 10

Does not work

Choice B) y = -3x + 4

-2 = -3(2) + 4

-2 = -2

Works

Choice C) y = -1/3x + 4

-2 = -1/3(2) + 4

-2 = -2/3 + 4

-2 = -2/3 + 12/3

-2 = 10/3

Choice A) y = 4x - 3

-2 = 4(2) - 3

-2 = 5

You can also just take a look at the function and see that its slope is downwards so it has to be negative. Then check the slope using rise/run.

For every 1 to the right it goes down 3, so -3/1 = -3. The only function with a slope of -3 is answer choice B.
