The location of an ant from a tree was 3 meters west (negative direction). The ant walked towards the tree at a constant rate and reached the tree in 2 minutes. If y represents the location of the ant from the tree, in meters, and x represents the time in minutes, which graph best represents this situation? graph of line going through ordered pairs negative 3, 0 and 0, 2 graph of line going through ordered pairs 0, negative 3 and 2, 0 graph of line going through ordered pairs 0, 2 and 3, 0 graph of line going through ordered pairs 0, negative 2 and negative 3, 0

y represents location, and it says the ant was 3 meters away in the negative direction to begin with. So, make sure the beginning of the line segment is at -3 on the y-axis. Next, it says to measure time in minutes with x, and it took the ant 2 minutes to get to the tree. So the end of the line segment would be at 2 on the x-axis
