Answer:

See a solution process below:

Explanation:

The #x#-intercept of #2# can be written as: #(2, 0 )# and we plot this on the grid as:

graph{((x - 2)^2 + y^2 - 0.125) = 0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

The #y#-intercept of #-6# can be written as: #(0, -6 )# and we plot this on the grid as:

graph{((x - 2)^2 + y^2 - 0.125)(x^2 + (y + 6)^2 - 0.125) = 0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}

We can now draw a line through the two points to graph the line:

graph{(y -3x+6)((x - 2)^2 + y^2 - 0.125)(x^2 + (y + 6)^2 - 0.125) = 0 [-20, 20, -10, 10]}
