That is a line; plot any two points on it.

#### Explanation:

(x, y) lies on the line

if and only if the values of x and y solve the equation. That is, they make it true.

If you are using paper (and not a computer), two of the easiest points to find are the intercepts.

A graph has an x-intercept when y = 0.

When y = 0 in this case,

This means that

I'll leave the rest to you. Find the y-intercept by determining the point where x = 0.
