# How do you graph #2x+3y=12#?

##### 2 Answers

By rebuilding it to an easier formula.

#### Explanation:

This formula can be "rebuild" into the regular form of y = a*x + b

We substract 2x from each side of the equation, we then get;

3y = -2x + 12

We then divide everything by 3.

The formula then looks like this;

y = (-2/3 * x) + 12, which you should be able to graph.

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve for two points which solve the equation and plot these points:

**First Point:** For

**Second Point:** For

We can next plot the two points on the coordinate plane:

graph{(x^2+(y-4)^2-0.035)((x-6)^2+y^2-0.035)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Now, we can draw a straight line through the two points to graph the line:

graph{(2x + 3y - 12)(x^2+(y-4)^2-0.035)((x-6)^2+y^2-0.035)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
