Answer:

plot #" " (0, 6)," "(12,0)#

and draw a straight line through them

Explanation:

rearrange to the gradient -intercept form of the straight line

#y=mx+c#

#2x+4y=12#

#4y=-2x+12#

#y=-1/2x+6#

to graph :

#y#- intercept is the #c# value # c=6#

to find second put put #y=0#

#0=-1/2x+6#

#x=12#

plot #" " (0, 6)," "(12,0)#

and draw a straight line through them
