    Hello, Gracy,

    I can only suggest a possible way:

    1. Choose 2 x-values.
    2. Plug them into the equation of the straight line and calculate the corresponding y-values.
    3. Draw these 2 points
    4. Connect these points

    Carefully?

    Your questions makes it seem like the fractional y-intercept is your problem. The fraction doesn't change anything about the line, just follow earboth's directions and you should be fine. It may help to solve for Y before plugging in values of X.
